Staff gives exec the royal treatment
Talk about the red carpet treatment. Buena Vista Motion Picture Group prexy David Vogel, who just assumed leadership over Touchstone, Disney and Hollywood Pictures, spent a regal afternoon last week at the Endeavor agency.
According to agency insiders, when the elevator doors opened, Vogel was serenaded by a raft of trumpeters, led down a red carpet into the conference room, given a cape and seated upon a throne.
Then the entire Endeavor staff sang “Hail to the Chief.”
“We just wanted to congratulate him and have some fun,” said one Endeavor insider. “It was all in the spirit of his new job.”
Vogel couldn’t be reached for comment on the reception, but insiders said he enjoyed it in a kingly fashion.
