Disney taps Jamie Voris for top tech post

Exec replaces Brandeau as chief technology officer

Jamie Voris has been upped to chief technology officer of the Walt Disney Studios, replacing Greg Brandeau.

Exec oversees the development of technology strategies for the film division, reporting to Alan Bergman, president of the Walt Disney Studios.

“Technology plays such an important role at Disney, helping us create new ways to engage deeply with our consumers while running a more innovative and efficient business,” Bergman said. “Jamie possesses exactly the combination of experience, expertise and passion we need to cohesively lead the wide array of technology initiatives at our studio.”

Voris most recently served as VP of marketing technology for the Walt Disney Studios, where he oversaw the digital tools used by the studio’s marketing team. He joined Disney in 2010 from the National Football League, where he was CTO, digital media, and VP of research and development.

“We have an amazing team full of smart, innovative people, and I’m looking forward to working with them to drive the studio and the industry forward in these exciting times,” Voris said.

Brandeau was formerly CTO of Pixar and Walt Disney Studios. He left the Mouse House in April.
