Bob Iger, who recently came back as Disney’s CEO following Bob Chapek’s exit, wasted no time in revealing his plans for the company soon after he took back his role. He said he wanted the artists and creators to have more control of their creations and made clear his intentions to give them back their power. The decision was revealed to employees of The Walt Disney Company through an email that said, “These changes will put more decision-making back in the hands of our creative teams.” 

In a stunning move, as one of the earliest actions after his reinstatement, Bob Iger relieved the chairman of the  Media and Entertainment Distribution Division of the company, Kareem Daniel, from his duties. Among his many duties, Daniel also served as the right hand for former CEO Bob Chapek.

Soon after implementing the changes, Iger released a statement to his employees in which he reassured them about the future of the company and asked for their support. An excerpt from the statement reads, “I know change can be unsettling, but it is also necessary and even energizing, and so I ask for your patience as we develop a roadmap for this restructuring. More information will be shared over the coming weeks. Until a new structure is put in place, we will continue to operate under our existing structure. In the meantime, I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and thank you again for all you do.”
