Disney+ appoints Alisa Bowen as president – ​​Deadline


Disney+ has a new president.

Alisa Bowen has been promoted to this position. She was most recently EVP, Business Operations, a position to which she was promoted in February.

Bowen will continue to report to Michael Paull, President, Direct to Consumer, Disney Media Entertainment & Distribution.

It comes after Paull was promoted to the role earlier this year with responsibility for Disney+, Hulu, ESPN+ and Star+. He oversees these platforms globally for Disney Media & Entertainment Distribution, reporting to Kareem Daniel.

Bowen will take on the role of head of Disney+ after this restructuring, which also saw promotions for Joe Earley as president of Hulu and Rebecca Campbell as head of an international content creation hub.

She has led global business operations for Disney’s streaming platforms, including Disney+, since its launch in 2019. She joined Disney in 2017 as SVP, Digital Media and CTO of the company’s international operations.

“Alisa has been an indispensable member of our leadership team since the inception of Disney+,” Paull said. “She has a rare and valuable combination of deep institutional knowledge, forward-thinking innovation and global vision rooted in a strong focus on our consumer that is perfectly suited for this critical role, and I am confident she will have a immediate impact and a positive impact on the business.”

“Disney+ is a story of phenomenal growth and has thrilled fans around the world on a huge scale. We have a top-notch team behind this success and I’m thrilled to partner with them in this new role as we are driving the next phase of growth for Disney+,” Bowen added. “Our upcoming content is incredibly exciting, and we’re committed to innovating to give our fans and subscribers the best experience possible, including more choices about how they can enjoy Disney+.”
