Bob Iger is an American businessman chiefly known for his transformative role as the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of The Walt Disney Company from 2005 to 2020. Under his leadership, the world-renowned entertainment company not only scaled new heights but also expanded its horizons through a series of high-profile acquisitions.

One can’t discuss Iger’s career without delving into his game-changing decisions, such as the acquisitions of Pixar in 2006 for $7.4 billion, Marvel Entertainment in 2009 for $4 billion, Lucasfilm in 2012 for $4.05 billion, and 21st Century Fox in 2019 for $71.3 billion. These acquisitions gave Disney ownership over a vast library of popular works, ranging from ‘Toy Story’ and ‘Monsters, Inc.’ to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the Star Wars franchise. These new assets breathed life into Disney’s film and television outputs, theme parks, and even a new streaming service, Disney+.

Collaboration lies at the heart of Iger’s success, highlighted by key relationships with influential individuals. He worked closely with Steve Jobs, who was integral in the Pixar acquisition and subsequent launch of Disney+. George Lucas handed him the reins of the Star Wars universe, trusting in his vision for its future. Rupert Murdoch of 21st Century Fox, Bob Chapek, who succeeded him as Disney’s CEO, and John Lasseter of Pixar also come to mind. Outside of business, his connections with Oprah Winfrey, Tom Hanks, Jimmy Kimmel, and even world leaders like Barack Obama and Xi Jinping, all played pivotal roles at different stages of his career.

Bob Iger was named Time’s Businessperson of the Year in 2019 and was listed among Forbes’ World’s Most Powerful People. Furthermore, Iger has been inducted into the Television Academy Hall of Fame and has received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
