Former Disney CEO Bob Iger, avatar platform Genies board member and Metaverse supporter Bob Iger announced. He will succeed current Disney CEO Bob Chapek as Disney CEO.
According to reports, Iger’s return is only temporary, and he only agreed to serve as Disney CEO for the next two years. In his new term as CEO, Iger will work with the board to set the strategic direction for the company and work to develop a successor.
It is reported that when Disney applied for patents related to the metaverse in December last year, Bob Iger was still Disney’s executive officer and chairman of the board of directors. At that time, Disney stated that it had no plan to use the virtual world simulator patent, and the company had not announced any products related to this patent.
