JRA CEO Keith James Named to Blooloop 50 Theme Park Influencers List

Blooloop, one of the premiere digital publications in the theme park industry, has just named JRA CEO/Owner Keith James to its "Blooloop 50 Theme Park Influencer List." In collaboration with the Omnico group and a distinguished panel of judges, Blooloop created a list of influencers drawn from its readers across the world.

"The Blooloop 50 is designed to be an industry standard highlighting the most influential people each year," said Charles Read, Blooloop Managing Director." We hope this celebration of the theme park industry influencers inspires discussion across the country."

This is not James' first accolade. Most recently, Keith received the Themed Enteratinment Assocaition's Buzz Price Thea Award Recognizing a Lifetime of Distinguished Achivements. In 2011 IAAPA honored James with its Service Award, which is presented "in recognition of a member individual that works to foster the spirit of goodwill, professionalism, and higher levels of performance within the industry regionally, nationally, or internationally."

"Many thanks to Blooloop and to those who nominated me for this recognition," said James. "I am deeply flattered and humbled to be included, and I congratulate my friends and colleagues who make up the other 49 names on this list. I look forward to continuing to work with these professionals, along with the thousands of other exceptional creators and producers of the industry, to create memorable visitor experiences for many years to come."
