It’s certainly been an exciting week for new/returning Disney CEO Bob Iger, and he’s capped it today with a tweet sending out Thanksgiving wishes today.
Taking time out to post this morning on his Twitter, Iger sent his first tweet since once again taking over the reins of The Walt Disney Company.
The tweet read:
“Giving thanks today to family, friends, and all of my new fellow employees and cast members @WaltDisneyCo. It was always a privilege to work with all of you, and it certainly is a privilege to do it again! Happy Thanksgiving.”
What’s Old is New Again
As we reported late Sunday night (while we were all rocking out to the live Elton John concert on Disney+), former Disney CEO Bob Iger was reinstated in the role after the sudden ouster of previous CEO Bob Chapek, who held the position in between Iger leaving and then returning.
Over the next 48 hours, Iger addressed employees and Cast Members, confirming his sudden return, and began work restructuring the Media and Entertainment Distribution division, firing the Chapek-appointed Head of the Division Kareem Daniel, in the process.
Next on the announced agenda for Iger is an employee/cast member town hall meeting on Monday morning to discuss the future of Disney. The memo he sent out to everyone said:
“Dear Fellow Employees and Cast Members:
On Monday, I will be returning to the Walt Disney Studio Lot, a place I have always loved. I’m eager to be rejoining dear colleagues and meeting new team members who’ve become part of our company this past year.
To start the week off, please join me in a Town Hall on Monday, where I will talk about the future of this incredible company and answer your questions about the work ahead as we build on Disney’s legacy of creativity, innovation, and inspiration. The information for the event is below.
I hope you will join me.”
We will bring you the highlights of that Town Hall later on Monday.
