Ken Potrock Named President of the Disneyland Resort
In a big day of shakeups at the Walt Disney Company making Josh D’Aramo Chairman of the Disney Parks, Experiences, and Products division, Ken Potrock has been promoted to the President of the Disneyland Resort.
Most recently, Potrock was President of Consumer Products for the Walt Disney Company for 25 years. As President of the Disneyland Resort, he will oversee both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park, three hotels, and the Downtown Disney District. He succeeds Rebecca Campbell who was also just named Chairman of The Walt Disney Company’s Direct-to-Consumer and International division.
I’m grateful for the opportunity to join the remarkable team at Walt Disney’s original park,” said Mr. Potrock. “This Resort holds a special place in the hearts of our Guests around the world – a responsibility that we all take very seriously, and we will continue to build on that foundation by delivering unforgettable experiences, while creating memories that last a lifetime.”
During Potrock’s time at the Walt Disney Company, he was known for developing, invigorating, and transforming numerous Disney properties and businesses to deliver consistent and dynamic growth. He has held the titles of Senior Vice President and General Manager of Disney Vacation Club and of Adventures by Disney.
Potrock led the expansion of Disney Springs at Walt Disney World in 2015 and was also Senior Vice President of Disney Sports Enterprises where he led the charge to rebrand the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex also at Walt Disney World. In 1996, Potrock began his career at the company as Vice President, Marketing for Disney Cruise Line where he launched the company into the cruise industry.
