Tim Fisher, Chief Operating Officer

Chief Operating Officer Tim Fisher joined Cedar Fair in December 2017, bringing with him 40 years of experience in the U.S. and international theme park industry, dating back to his first job at Carowinds in Charlotte, North Carolina.

As COO, Tim takes a hands-on and detail-oriented approach, ensuring that Cedar Fair’s long-range plan is executed with precision, and that the parks and resort properties perform to the company’s budgeted financial targets.

Prior to Cedar Fair, Tim served as CEO for three different regions of Village Roadshow Theme Parks in succession, including the North America region from April 2007 to January 2009; the Australia region through March 2017; and the Asia region through November 2017.  Under Tim’s leadership as CEO, the theme park group achieved records for attendance, revenues and EBITDA performance.  Prior to Village Roadshow, Tim was executive vice president of Paramount Parks and Viacom Recreation USA, where he was responsible for the management, operational and financial performance of all theme parks domestic and international until August 2006.

Tim was awarded a B.B.A. in Business/Marketing and an A.A. in Business Administration from American Intercontinental University.  He has served as a board director for a number of companies, including Carlyle Group’s APEX Parks Group.  Tim also serves on the national board of A Kid Again, a non-profit organization that serves families with children that are suffering from life changing illnesses.

Tim and his wife Shandelle sketched out a design concept for a remodeled kitchen in their Charlotte home, then hired a local construction company to bring their concept to life. Some months later Tim was notified that the contractor had won a National Contractor of the Year Award and “Best in Show” (scoring 88 of 90 possible points) based on the Fishers’ kitchen “for exceptional results in a remodeling project.”
