Bob Iger Sends Heart-Warming First Tweet Since His Return as CEO

After attempting to retire, Bob Iger is back at the helm at Disney. The former (and now current) CEO, who previously said he would never return to Disney, accepted the position after being in talks since this past Thursday (November 17, 2022). The announcement was made late Sunday night and fans haven’t stopped talking about it yet.

During his impressive career Bob Iger led Disney into a period of unparalleled financial success. He also led the company through a period of unparalleled expense, buying up Pixar, Marvel, ESPN, Hulu, Lucasfilm (and more)! He has the respect of Hollywood and the confidence of investors and fans. Bob iger returned to the company to great fanfare and adulation.

He got right to work, rolling up his sleeves to begin a complete overhaul and restructuring of the company. His first official act was to fire Bob Chapek’s right hand man, Kareem Daniel. Next he announced a Town Hall meeting for Disney employees and Cast Members. There are rumors about what may come next but nothing concrete has been confirmed yet.

Today, however, he is enjoying Thanksgiving and expressing his gratitude. In his first official Tweet back as CEO, Iger tweeted out his thanks for his team and all of the individuals who make Disney so great before expressing that it is a privilege to be able to lead the Company he loves once again.

Notably, former Full House star and Disney super fan John Stamos tweeted in response: “Let’s do it again!” It seems Stamos is an Iger fan!

We are eager to see where the next two years takes the company u der the direction of Bob Iger. This year we are certainly thankful for the renewed hope within the Disney community the shake up has brought.
