Bruce Vaughn is now top dog over a “streamlined” WDI it appears.
“In addition to steering “operating infrastructure” at the Orlando and Anaheim, Calif., parks through Weiss, Disney said that its Walt Disney Imagineering unit would be reorganized into a single practice reporting to Bruce Vaughn, executive vice president and chief creative executive, and Craig Russell, executive vice president and chief design and project delivery executive. The company also said it would establish a new “Global Business Development team” headed by Executive Vice President Nick Franklin, which will be charged with combining existing business and real-estate development functions. The unit will be will responsible for focusing growth strategies at existing parks-and-resorts businesses and identifying new opportunities around the globe.”
I dunno, I find it ironic that just a few days ago I was trying to email Bruce Vaughn because he’s listed as an adjunct professor at UCLA’s theater school. I suppose he’s a bit busy to be emailing me back. (Anyone else got an “in” with UCLA’s MFA program?)
Oh, and to note – his degree is in English Lit with a minor in Art History. Just food for thought.
