Christine McCarthy Early Favorite to Replace Bob Iger as Disney’s CEO

The Walt Disney Companies Chief Financial Officer Christine McCarthy is the early favorite to replace Bob Iger as CEO in the coming months. She is on the short list of contenders for the CEO position when Iger vacates the spot in 2 years’ time.

According to Deadline “Christine has always been a force to be reckoned with, but you have to put her on a list of top five possibilities after the last few weeks,” a Disney insider said of the now-prominent CFO. If McCarthy was handed the keys to the Magic Kingdom in the next 23 months, the exec would occupy a historic position as the first female CEO in Disney’s soon-to-be more than 100-year existence.
