Mark Zoradi, president, Walt Disney Studios Motion
Pictures Group, has resigned effective immediately.
Another sad day at the Mouse Factory. I've known Mark Zoradi since his promotion to President of the Disney Motion Picture Group in 2006. He and former boss Dick Cook were, to me savvy businessmen with a special sensativity for wholesome entertainment; the kind that made Disney the most successful family-friendly brand on the planet. Mark and Dick will both be sorly missed according to a Disney executive I spoke with. And, I second that emotion. I hope the studio doesn't lose its way in all this restructuring. Faithful followers will notice if the direction changes as little as one degree. We at The Dove Foundation will be watching.
I wish nothing but the best for Mark and his family as he transitions to the next new thing!
