Disney Consumer Products has named Leslie Ferraro as its new president. A Disney veteran, Ferraro most recently served as Walt Disney Parks and Resorts’ EVP of global marketing, sales and travel operations. She will take over from former president, Bob Chapek, who became chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts in February.
“Leslie is a highly talented, proven executive with a strong track record of creativity and innovation,” said Robert Iger, chairman and CEO. “Having managed worldwide marketing and sales for one of our largest businesses, she brings a global perspective and deep knowledge of the company and its brands to her new position.”
Ferraro added: “This is an exciting time at Disney Consumer Products, given the company’s unprecedented array of brands and franchises. I look forward to leading this dynamic business and our incredibly talented team as we continue to launch new products and retail experiences that combine technological innovation and creativity.”
