Disney's Board Has Stopped Looking For a New CEO Because They Really Just Want to Keep The Current One
|DISNEY CEO BOB IGER|
You can't tout how talented the company's leadership is but show no confidence in any them to lead the entire company one day. Bob Iger once said that “The most important quality that the next CEO of the Walt Disney Company must have is the ability to appreciate the value of great creators and the creative process". Really? That's it? This is the most important quality the next CEO of Disney needs to have? So why is it so hard to find someone? Surely many if not all of the executives inside Disney have this very important quality, they work for Disney! And if not inside the company, then there are multiple individuals we could name that all have that quality of "appreciating the value of great creators and the creative process". The Disney board is probably just afraid of change and doesn't know how to accept the reality that Bob Iger will not be CEO forever. The time for Mr. Iger's exit couldn't be more perfect. Sure ESPN struggling to hold on to relevance but Disney is doing well and it's always good to go out on a high note instead of leaving when things start to go south. Disney's board must let go off of their Iger obsession and truly start vetting individuals inside and outside the company to build a short list to select Disney's next CEO. There are many viable candidates, but Disney's board is simply not looking.
