Key Player: Dennis Maguire

President, Buena Vista Home Entertainment international

Exec trivia: Started as a BV retail salesman in Philadelphia in 1982.

The basics: Maguire’s a Disney lifer, almost all of it on the home entertainment side. He rose through the company until he took over as prexy of BVHE’s international arm in 2000 after helping to orchestrate its initial domestic rise to prominence.

Rep: Maguire has spurred major growth and record sales numbers at just about every level he’s been involved with at BVHE.

POV: “We are using our extensive (domestic) experience in the industry and applying those lessons to the younger, less developed international business. We have found that retailers around the world have more similarities than differences, just as consumers around the world have more similarities than differences. Therefore, we focus on what is the same, rather than what is different, among those retailers and consumers. Of course, we need to be sensitive to the cultural, language, and consumption differences of each territory.”
