Ex-Disney exec joins TRC Family board

Andy Mooney to serve as joint chairman

Former Disney Consumer Products chairman Andy Mooney has made his next career move, joining the board of Malta-based TRC Family Entertainment.

Mooney will be based in Los Angeles.

Mooney will serve as joint chairman of the company alongside Chris Deering, former president of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe.

Over the past year, TRC has quietly built its ranks to more than 100 staffers to produce family programming across various platforms, including films, TV, music, books, virtual worlds and merchandise.

At Disney, Mooney launched the Disney Princess and Fairies franchises, overhauled the company’s Disney Stores and expanded the Mouse House’s licensing and publishing business, while also building English-language learning centers in China to grow the Disney brand with consumers there. He left the company last year (Daily Variety, Sept. 6).
