Bob Iger to step down as Disney CEO in 2015
Written by Robert Niles
Disney announced today that CEO Bob Iger will step down in 2015. No word yet on who will replace him, though presumably Disney's planning to promote a successor from within, given the long lead time on the announcement.Tweet
Iger will stay with the company for a year after stepping down as CEO, then leave Disney entirely. Iger will be 65 when he leaves the company.
Current Disney Parks chairman Tom Staggs and former parks chairman Jay Rasulo are tipped as the most likely replacements.
What do you think of the job Iger's done at Disney? Who would you like to see as his replacement?
