  • Disney's Zoradi steps down

    Rich Ross is starting to put his stamp on the Mouse House's feature operations.

    Mark Zoradi announced on Monday his resignation as president of worldwide marketing and distribution of the Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures Group, becoming the first senior executive to depart since Ross took the reins as chairman of Walt Disney Studios early last month (Daily Variety, Oct. 6).

    Zoradi, who leaves immediately, had worked for the Mouse House for the past 29 years and was appointed by Dick Cook, who resigned as chairman of the studio in September.

    Sad, I suppose.

      Ouch! I imagine that they'll clean house of the Dick Cook people eventually.

      It will certainly be a different division with a new focus when they are done. I have no way of knowing if this is a good thing or not, but it sure is interesting.

      Thank you for sharing Ms. D!

        Thanks DS!

        It will be very interesting to see who settles in from the exisiting studio ranks and from Disney Channel one would think. They have some tremendous long-time folks in marketing, promotions & publicity that could contribute alot if given the room to do so. And there is always talent to be had from other studios too.

        There is quite obviously a different focus which could be really exciting and much needed. Similar situations across town at Universal, Warner Bros. and Paramount too. These things are traditionally cyclical so it'll take some time to play out and see who's a genius and who isn't.
