The Cape Coral Parks & Recreation Department is pleased to announce that Sandra Greiner, Manager of Sun Splash Family Waterpark, recently received a 2019 Executive Board Award from the World Waterpark Association (WWA).
Executive Board Awards are presented annually to individuals or organizations for special accomplishments in the water leisure industry that have contributed to industry knowledge and expertise for the benefit of the WWA membership. Greiner is the only individual to be honored with an Executive Board Award this year.
Formerly in the financial services industry, Greiner was hired as Manager of Sun Splash Family Waterpark in 2010 to generate revenue, reduce expenses and improve overall operations of the park.
She has been extremely successful in that mission, with a 34% increase in revenue the first year alone and a profitable park by year three. This has been done while managing five full-time staff and almost two-hundred seasonal employees every season.
Greiner has been involved with the World Waterpark Association since 2011, teaching classes at the annual WWA Show, as well as contributing editorial columns for World Waterpark Magazine. She currently serves on WWA’s Public Sector Committee.
“We are extremely proud of Sandie’s accomplishments and the World Waterpark Association recognizing her with one of only two Executive Board Awards presented this year,” said Kerry Runyon, Cape Coral Parks & Recreation Director. “Even when faced with large obstacles, ranging from hurricanes to a building fire, Sandie has remained positive and committed to professionalism, and is a real asset to the Cape Coral Parks & Recreation Department and our community.”
The Executive Board Award was officially presented on October 8, 2019, during the World Waterpark Association’s Annual Show and Conference at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando. For more information on WWA, visit www.waterparks.org.
