Kareem Daniel Leaves Disney Following Bob Chapek’s Departure

Kareem Daniel, Chairman of Disney Media and Entertainment Distribution, is leaving the Walt Disney Company following Bob Chapek’s departure. Kareem was a top leader under Chapek so it comes as no surprise that he is also leaving the company.

Kareem Daniel was the head of the new Disney Media and Entertainment Distribution, an organization that Chapek put in place when he was CEO. The organization was charged with the dissemination and ad sales for Disney content, including Disney+.

Iger’s vision differed from the organization’s. In 2021, Iger voiced his ideas saying, “In a world and business that is awash with data, it is tempting to use data to answer all of our questions, including creative questions. I urge all of you not to do that.”

Iger sent a note to employees today regarding Kareem’s departure from the company:

“I’ve asked Dana Walden, Alan Bergman, Jimmy Pitaro, and Christine McCarthy to work together on the design of a new structure that puts more decision-making back in the hands of our creative teams and rationalizes costs, and this will necessitate a reorganization of Disney Media & Entertainment Distribution. As a result, Kareem Daniel will be leaving the company, and I hope you will all join me in thanking him for his many years of service to Disney.”

It comes as no surprise that those close to Chapek will also be leaving the company as Iger works to “set the strategic direction for renewed growth” at Disney.
