The Seattle Aquarium

The Seattle Aquarium is the ninth largest aquarium in the U.S. by attendance and among the top five paid visitor attractions in the Puget Sound region.  Opened in 1977, the Seattle Aquarium was owned and operated by the City of Seattle Department of Parks and Recreation until 2010, when the nonprofit Seattle Aquarium Society assumed its management.

MacDonald Boyd and Associates has ongoing, active engagement with the Aquarium on all levels as it tackles the challenges and opportunities associated with large scale culture change and transformative executive leadership development.
