About the Candidate
Until end of December 2019, I was the Director of Communications, for The Walt Disney Company Europe, Middle East & Africa.
In this role, I led the integrated consumer / corporate / trade communications function across Disney’s Europe, Middle East and African business for over 5 years, running communications for Disney’s tech/streaming businesses, content divisions, live entertainment and consumer products teams. Through this time, I worked with Disney’s European leadership to innovate and disrupt our business, and our communications strategy, across the region. My final two projects were the European launch of Disney+, which I led, and the franchise launch of “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.”
I was responsible for the management of over 20 people in London and major European cities, and worked in close collaboration with the Global Communications colleagues in California and New York.
I progressed to this role throughout 12 years of communications/PR roles in Disney’s TV and tech divisions.
