Former Disney CEO Michael Eisner says Disney has suffered in recent years

Recently Former Disney CEO Michael Eisner tweeted his support for the return of Bob Iger to the Walt Disney Company after Bob Chapek was let go back on November 20th.

Michael D. Eisner served as chairman of the board and chief executive officer of The Walt Disney Company since September 22nd, 1984. Additionally, he assumed the presidency on April 4, 1994, a year and a half, after the death of Frank Wells.

He was born on March 7, 1942, in Mount Kisco, New York, and attended the Lawrenceville School and Denison University, where he received a B.A. in English literature and theater. He was a senior vice president at ABC Entertainment and president and chief operating officer of Paramount Pictures Corp. before coming to Disney.

He is married to the former Jane Breckenridge, and they have three sons.  He stepped down from the chairman post on March 3, 2004, and retired from the company on September 30, 2005.

Michael went on the record earlier today to say:

The Walt Disney Company has suffered in recent years. This is a good time for us to remember the words of Walt Disney who said, “Everybody falls down. Getting back up is how you learn to walk.”

Yesterday former protege to Michael Eisner and now Disney CEO Bob Iger held a Town Hall Meeting for Disney Cast Members. We put together the Highlights from that meeting which you can catch here.
