Back in February of 2020, Bob Iger stepped down as CEO with Bob Chapek taking over the role and, soon after two top Disney executives announced that they would be departing at the end of 2021. And, now Disney has announced who will be taking over their roles.

According to Variety, Geoff Morrell has been hired to replace Zenia Mucha as Disney’s Chief Communications Officer at the end of the year. Reportedly, Morrell will also take over government relations for the company, a role that once fell under Alan Braverman, the Chief Counsel and Senior Executive Vice President (who is also leaving this year).


Morrell will be transitioning into the role after serving as the Executive Vice President of Communications and Advocacy at BP. He also previously worked as Chief Spokesperson for the U.S. Department of Defense and prior to that was a journalist for ABC News covering the White House.

This joins other recent staffing announcements from Disney, including who will be replacing Bob Iger as Chairman of the Board when he departs on December 31st, 2021.
