  • Pressler new Disney CEO??

    I just read an article in Fortune magazine that said the outside contractor hired by Disney to find candidates for CEO is interested in Pressler to head the company. He did such a great job running Disneyland into the ground I guess they think it would be a good idea to bring him to do the same to the whole company. I'm not sure about the regarding posting links here so I'll just tell you I found under "news" while looking Disneys stock price and Yahoo. I just though all you DL fans would want to know that Presler's reign to terror may not be over yet.

    Dear god no.... If they hire him, there will be a huge army of protesters throwing eggs at the Disney Executive offices in Burbank.
    Hail Matt Ouimet, the savior of Disneyland!

          I saw the title of this thread and I about died.

          I think they would pick Iger over Pressler. My hope is that the Board of Directors is asking for a CEO that will be more people friendly than Eisner. I know not every company should be concerned about the likeability of a CEO in terms of consumers, but Disney really does need someone likeable in that position.

          Maybe the B of D should look to one of Disney's classic films for inspearation on the shining qualities a CEO should posses:

          The Perfect Nanny CEO
          from Mary Poppins

          Jane Banks: [Spoken]

          Wanted a nanny for two adorable children

          [Sung]

          If you want this choice position
          Have a cheery disposition
          Rosy cheeks, no warts!
          Play games, all sort

          You must be kind, you must be witty
          Very sweet and fairly pretty
          Take us on outings, give us treats
          Sing songs, bring sweets

          Never be cross or cruel
          Never give us castor oil or gruel
          Love us as a son and daughter
          And never smell of barley water

          If you won't scold and dominate us
          We will never give you cause to hate us
          We won't hide your spectacles
          So you can't see
          Put toads in your bed
          Or pepper in your tea

          Hurry, Nanny CEO!

          Many thanks

          Sincerely,

          Jane and Michael Banks:

          Jane and Michael Banks.

            I wonder how many cases of eggs can fit in my CR-V? :botox:

            I actually think I would boycott Disney if that happened. And I don't normally believe in boycotts...........

              NOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! That would be a BIG mistake...If Pressler comes back...i'd say he's the antichrist...trying to take over the world...He probably figures that he can most quietly into the world through Disney...lol...maybe not...but that would be almost like it...LOL...
              Went to a party the other night
              All the ladies were treating me right
              Moving my feet to the disco beat
              How in the world could I keep my seat
              All of a sudden I began to change
              I was on the dance floor acting strange
              Flapping my arms I began to cluck
              Look at me..I'm the disco duck


              "Do the Disco Duck!!!"

                Right after renewing their APs, I'm sure.

                  Well, I think this is rank speculation of the worst nature. As far as I have been able to glean, the candidate search has barely begun .... and Pressler was never even on the short list. I don't know where this "news" came from, but it smells of bogusfi****y to me.

                  That being said, I am already halfway considering not renewing my AP after the 50th. Were Pressler to become Disney CEO, that would be the end of any future money or patronage the company would get from me.



                  Furthermore, I'm not so sure this thread even belongs in the Disneyland forum. So if you find it gone, it may be because I decided it more properly belongs elsewhere ... or it might be because I can't bear to even look at the title anymore!

                        To quote Lucasarts' Curse of Monkey Island, "Well that's odd...I'm now seeing spots before my eyes and tasting metal. I believe that idea is so bad it has actually caused me to have a stroke." :monkey:
