Bergman

Co-Chairman

In May 2019, Bergman was promoted to co-chairman of Walt Disney Studios, alongside Alan Horn (who simultaneously added the additional title of chief creative officer), giving him oversight of the company’s film, music and theater groups, as well as its global marketing, distribution, communications, human resources, operations, technology, business and legal affairs, labor relations and finance divisions. Previously, he assumed the role of president in 2005 and went on to lead the studio’s integrations of Pixar, Marvel Studios and (with Horn) and Lucasfilm. In the wake of Disney’s $71.3 acquisition of 21st Century Fox in March, Bergman and Horn, known to some as “the Alans,” have been working hard to bring the Fox film labels fully under the Mouse House umbrella.
