Bird (seen second from the right above) joined Disney 14 years ago after spending time at Time Warner and was pivotal in helping Disney expand its reach in Russia, China, and India.

According to a piece in the Hollywood Reporter, in anticipation of the integration of assets from 21st Century Fox, CEO Bob Iger announced a reorganization that will change the conglomerate’s segments as well as the addition of a new segment that includes international and direct-to-consumer which will now be overseen by Kevin Mayer.

The other segments include parks, experiences and consumer products which will broaden the role of Bob Chapek, studio entertainment which will continue to have Alan Horn at the helm and Ben Sherwood and James Piatro will continue to oversee the media networks.
