Robert Iger, CEO of Disney

Here is a picture of Disney's CEO, Robert Iger.

And here is the Wiki bio on Robert Iger and Disney's bio of him.
Iger had been the number two man at Disney until Michael Eisner, then CEO, was forced out of Disneyin March of 2005. A year later is when the Pixar merger occurred. Here is an excerpt from the Wiki bio of Iger:
Pixar merger
On January 24, 2006, in a move that would have been inconceivable a year earlier, Disney announced it would acquire Pixar for US $7.4 billion in an all-stock transaction. The merger installed animator John Lasseter as Chief Creative Officer of the Disney/Pixar animation studios and Principal Creative Advisor for Walt Disney Imagineering, the division that designs theme park attractions. It also made Steve Jobs Disney's top shareholder with 7% of outstanding shares and gave him a new seat on Disney's board of directors.
