Corrine A. Brindley
Corporate Vice President, External Affairs, SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment
Corrine Brindley’s SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment career began in 1987 in the SeaWorld San Diego public relations department. Responsibilities included acting as park spokesperson, developing story ideas, and writing press releases. While in public relations, Brindley penned a dozen SeaWorld San Diego television specials, and was awarded two Emmy awards by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences for outstanding achievement in writing.
In 1998 Brindley helped coordinate the company’s first ballot initiative. The passage of Proposition D, the SeaWorld height initiative, allowed the California park to propose attractions over 30 feet tall on the park’s city-leased land.

Currently Brindley is responsible for federal affairs and government relations in the company’s five states serving as the primary contact for city, county, state and federal representatives. She also oversees non-profit conservation partnerships and provides strategic direction for the parks’ community relations efforts.
A graduate of the University of California, San Diego, Brindley is a native San Diegan. She sits on numerous industry boards and committees and is active in the local community. An avid traveler, she has visited each of the seven continents.
