PGAV Destinations have announced the promotion of Jim Wible to Director of Attraction Development.
As Director of Attraction Development, Wible’s focus will be on design leadership and further developing the “PGAV Way” of design, as well as mentoring other designers.
Discussing his new role, Wible said, “The most exciting thing for me is the chance to lead bigger teams through the development of the newest, most incredible projects. Attractions are only as good as the team behind them, and I have the humble honor of getting to work with – and now lead – an incredible variety of creative, talented people here at PGAV.”
Wible has been with the St. Louis-based design firm for 27 years and has worked on major projects worldwide, including at all three SeaWorlds, both Busch Gardens, Discovery Cove, Universal Studios, the Georgia Aquarium, National Aviary, Niagara Falls, and the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.
