For those of you who are unfamiliar with the name, Bob Iger is CEO of the multibillion-dollar corporation that is the Walt Disney Co. Iger began his media career with ABC in 1974 and in 2000 was named president and COO of Disney. Since 2005, he’s been the company’s CEO, succeeding Michael Eisner after a shakeup in company management. It has been said that Iger’s fearless decision-making is what saved Disney from going under in 2000.
