Alan
Bergman

Chairman, Studios Content

Bergman first got a big promotion in 2019, taking on the title of Walt Disney Studios co-chairman alongside Alan Horn, who had also been upped to chief creative officer just as Disney began integrating Fox’s film assets and accompanying execs. But if anyone can handle that responsibility, it’s Bergman, who first joined Disney in 1996 as a director in the corporate controllership group. He previously led the studio’s integrations of Pixar, Marvel Studios (with Horn) and Lucasfilm. Today, he and Horn — collectively known as “the two Alans” — oversee the com­pany’s film, music and theater groups, which were recently all consolidated under the label of studios content during a year marred by pandemic-related theatrical shutdowns.
