He went on to say that he would be leaving with a strong sense of pride about what he has accomplished with Disney and the future of the company itself. Over the past year, Iger began to step away from a few of his duties as a member of Governor Newsom’s Economic Task force as he passed down the Disney CEO title to Bob Chapek.
