Do you know a lot about the people that run The Walt Disney Company?
If you’ve been a fan of Disney for a long time, we’re sure you know about former CEOs like Michael Eisner and Bob Iger, as well as the current CEO Bob Chapek. But, you might be a bit more unfamiliar about who else is in charge at the company. There are a TON of executives, and one Disney executive just joined the board of another major U.S. company.
Disney executive Kareem Daniel has joined McDonald’s board as the 15th member, according to CNBC. He is the 4th new director to join McDonald’s board this year.
Daniel is in charge of Disney’s media and entertainment distribution group. He oversees the growth of streaming services, TV channels, and theatrical film distribution and is considered Disney CEO Bob Chapek’s right-hand man.
Daniel has been with Disney for over 15 years and previously held leadership roles on Disney’s corporate strategy, Walt Disney Imagineering, and consumer products, games, and publishing teams.
Back in August, McDonald’s announced that director Sheila Penrose was retiring. This is also when McDonald’s announced the appointment of 3 new board members, who took their seats on Saturday, October 1st, along with Kareem Daniel.
