Bob Iger is wasting no time making changes to Disney. Within a day of replacing his successor, Bob Chapek, as CEO, Iger sent a memo to employees of Disney Media and Entertainment Distribution informing them that the head of the division, Kareem Daniel, is out. And that’s just the beginning. “Over the coming weeks, we will begin implementing organizational and operating changes within the company,” Iger wrote. “It is my intention to restructure things in a way that honors and respects creativity as the heart and soul of who we are.” Iger said he has asked Dana Walden, Alan Bergman, Jimmy Pitaro, and Christine McCarthy to “work together on the design of a new structure that puts more decision-making back in the hands of our creative teams and rationalizes costs.”

Iger’s salary as CEO of Walt Disney Co. will be $1 million with an annual bonus of up to another million, according to a filing with the SEC. Even with possible stock and options with a target value of $25 million, it appears Iger is taking a pay cut – in 2019, his last full year as CEO of Disney, Iger took home total compensation of $47.5 million.
