The Mouse House has found its new tech guru.
Walt Disney Studios has named Arthur Hair chief technology officer. He’ll oversee all of the studio’s technology strategy, including taking advantage of new opportunities enabled by technology in the marketplace.
Hair was previously a co-founder and chief technology officer of SightSound Technologies, where he developed systems used by the now-defunct company to sell digital audio and video files online. He has numerous patents in audio and video e-commerce, compression and encryption.
He’ll report to Disney Studios prexy Alan Bergman.
