The story of Robert Iger’s time at the head of Disney has the air of a fairytale about it. In less than a decade he transformed this sleeping beauty of the entertainment industry into a real super hero. Between 2006 and 2012 Iger oversaw the acquisitions of Pixar, Marvel and Lucasfilm. Seemingly unstoppable in the world of film, the horizons for the House of Mouse look limitless. His also. He is thinking about entering the 2020 US presidential election, which falls well for Iger as his current term as Disney CEO is set to end next year.
Notable success: In deversifying the activities of the group Bob Iger found the magic formula for making money. Between 2013 and 2017, net results were up 42% to nine billion dollars.
