Kelly Departs Delaware North; Socha Steps Up

Kevin Kelly, who served as president of Delaware North’s travel hospitality services division, has left the company, according to a statement released today. No reason was given for the departure.

Scott Socha, president of Delaware North’s parks and resorts business, has been named interim leader. Jim Houser, executive vice president and chief operating officer, said Socha “will assist me in overseeing the division’s operations in the short term.”

“We thank Kevin for his work and dedication to Delaware North over many years, including with the travel division and also as president of our parks and resorts division,” Houser said in the statement. “During both of these leadership assignments, Delaware North added many new clients and extended several key operating contracts.”

According to his LinkedIn profile, Kelly served as president of the travel hospitality division of Delaware North from February 2014 through this month. His history with Delaware North dates back to at least 2005, when he began his role as president of the company’s parks and resorts division.

Socha was appointed as president of Delaware North’s parks and resorts business in April 2017. He had previously served as a vice president and treasurer, and has been employed by the company since 1999.
