Short Bio

Bob Iger was an executive at ABC for a long time, before he was transferred at Disney in 1999, five years after Katzenberg's departure. Iger effectively became Disney's second-in-command, the COO of the company, still run by Michael Eisner at the time. However, after Eisner was forced to leave in 2005, partly because of his mismanagement of the relationship with Pixar, Iger took over. He called Steve Jobs right away, which eventually led to the Pixar-Disney merger in 2006. Iger joined Apple’s board in November 2011, one month after Steve’s death.
