“It has been tremendous fun working with Donald De Line and Joe Roth, and I am grateful for their continued support,” Ros said. “I don’t think there has ever been a better time to be an executive at this company, and I look forward to continuing to be a part of their team.”

Ros joined Disney in 1993 as a creative executive for Touchstone, and was promoted to director of production the following year. Before that, he had worked for three years with Dawn Steel and her Disney-based company, Steel Pictures. Among the projects he was involved in developing were “Cool Runnings.”
