Walt Disney Co. named Ken Potrock president of Disneyland Resort, succeeding Rebecca Campbell, who held the title since September.
Campbell was named to lead the company’s corporate division that includes its streaming Disney+ service; the head of that unit, Kevin Mayer, left to become CEO of China-owned social media app TikTok.
Potrock, previously president of consumer products, is Disneyland’s fifth president in 10 years.
Josh D’Amaro, Disney Co. veteran and a former president of Disneyland, was named chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products, the corporate unit that includes all the entertainment giant’s theme parks.
D’Amaro fills a need created in February when Bob Chapek was named CEO of Burbank-based Walt Disney Co. D’Amaro was most recently president of Walt Disney World Resort; he will be replaced by Jeff Vahle.
Disneyland Resort—three hotels, two parks and a retail district—is OC’s largest employer with 32,000 workers. It has been closed since March 14; a reopening date has not yet been set.
