Bob Iger Named To California Coronavirus Business Recovery Task Force
Some news has just come in this afternoon that Bob Iger is one of the California business leaders appointed to a new task force focused on California’s economic recovery in the aftermath of COVID-19. The task force was set up by California Governor Gavin Newsome. Iger, who just stepped down from his role as the CEO of the Walt Disney Company joins 70 other prominent figures like Tim Cook, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jerry Brown.
The Governor’s office has said that the task force will meet twice a month through at least the end of 2020. As ComicBook.com tells us, California currently sits 6th in the nation for confirmed cases of COVID-19. The state has reported 28,000 cases since the start of the outbreak.
As we’ve been reporting here at MickeyBlog, The Walt Disney Company shuttered the theme parks including Disneyland at the start of the COVID-19 virus. The theme parks remain closed indefinitely and in addition, the Walt Disney Company has implemented measures to withstand the crisis including furloughing theme park and studio employees.
Just before the COVID-19 closures, Iger stepped down from the company as CEO with Bob Chapek taking his place. However, he has still been a figurehead of the company since the pandemic started and is crucial in helping Disney to steer the course during these unprecedented times.
Here at MickeyBlog, we will be closely following Bob Iger’s new role as part of this new task force and we promise to provide you with the latest news and updates regarding COVID-19s continued impact on The Walt Disney Company
