The above link is from an article from CNBC on how well the Disney Company has done. Looking at the numbers across the board, Iger has definitely shown his worth. In your opinion, is Bob Iger the best CEO Disney has ever had since the loss of Walt and Roy? Looking at it from a theme park perspective, has Iger done more than any of the previous ones?

Please take a moment to share this post, and encourage others to reply!

Perhaps, he really hasn't done anything too horrible to warrant him not being the best since the Disney brothers, but he still has time to screw that up :)

I also think that Robert Iger, unlike past heads of Disney, did not have to worry about the demise of Disney. While Eisner made some questionable moves, he brought back Disney from the brink.The only giant fire that Iger had to put out was with Pixar. While it would have been a huge loss for Disney, I think they still would have treked along.

Putting it more on a Theme Park level, has Iger really done anything monumental for Disney Parks? I would say not yet.

I think that history will judge him based on who comes up next. The problem with Eisner is he going to go down in Disney history as the guy who closed down the traditional animation studios.

I agree with you Anthony. I keep waiting theme park wise to see that wow factor happen under his tenure.
