Iger appears on one of the four covers for the magazine’s worldwide print edition. Actor Jennifer Coolidge, recording artist Doja Cat, and actor Michael B. Jordan were the other honorees from this year to be featured on the covers.

Each person on the list was honored by guest writers who have worked with or personally know them. Iger’s article was written by General Motors CEO Mary Barra, who’s been a Disney board member since 2017.

“For 100 years, The Walt Disney Company has entertained, informed, and inspired people around the globe through the power of unparalleled storytelling,” she wrote. “Bob Iger has guided the company to success for nearly two decades and is one of the best leaders I know.

“There’s a reason Bob remains one of the world’s most admired CEOs. He has led landmark acquisitions, championed culture-defining films, launched innovative distribution platforms, and delivered strong financial results, all while never forgetting the people—the employees and the fans—who make it all possible. His return as CEO in 2022 ushered in a new era of transformation and creative excellence for the most magical company on earth. His authenticity and pragmatism set him apart. He said, ‘True authority and true leadership comes from knowing who you are and not pretending to be anything else.’ I’ve personally learned so much from his leadership.”


TIME Studios and ABC will present a TIME100 primetime television special, and for the second year in a row, the special will bring viewers inside the 17th annual TIME100 Gala, airing Sunday, April 30, at 7 p.m. ET/PT on ABC, and available to stream the next day on Hulu and Disney+.

The gala will be hosted by Coolidge and feature performances by Doja Cat and Lea Michele, as well as honorary tributes from members of this year’s list, remarks from TIME CEO Jessica Sibley, and more.

Congrats to Bob Iger for winning this amazing accomplishment!
