The Walt Disney Company



While Iger seemingly looked forward to getting off the treadmill of executive life when he stepped away from Disney at the end of 2021, he couldn’t resist the call back. After his long and remarkably successful tenure as CEO and chairman, Iger suddenly replaced former CEO Bob Chapek in a true November surprise for a two-year stint running the company again. Iger is expected to help resolve significant operating losses in Disney’s streaming division amid macroeconomic mayhem and restore investor confidence. In his 10 months off, Iger served as a venture partner for Thrive Capital, continued work on his memoir and was one of the last recipients of knighthood from the late Queen Elizabeth II.
