I have hope for D'Amaro.

Feel bad for DL getting Potrock.

I've heard only good things about D'Amaro. I think he will succeed Chapek in a few years. I was sad to see him not have longer @ WDW, though.

Corporate Executive movement is certainly not my area of expertise, but this seems like an odd time to be shuffling the leadership team.

Maybe they’re trying to get a better look at the iceberg?

Chapek had to be replaced. When that domino fell it forced thes others to fall

Potrock? Hmm, looking on the bright side, perhaps he can wiggle a few extra benefits for DVC members at DLR. I know he's been asked about this repeatedly at the various Member events during his DVC period. Perhaps, just perhaps, he carries a soft spot for us? Maybe we can hope for a members lounge or better AP discount?

I suspect is part the Chapek update and in part Kevin Mayer going to TikTok as CEO that created an opening which Rebecca Campbell is filling. That and after every CEO switch there is virtually always a shakeup in structure. Why that happens I can only guess, I presume this is always done to dislodge old loyalties and create new ones.
