Disney Chief Executive Officer Bob Iger has led the company to record growth since he took over in 2005. He has also overseen a number of successful acquisitions. There is no one more qualified to lead Disney through the potential acquisition of the majority of 21st Century Fox, which is why, according to CNBC, Disney will extended Iger’s current deal if the Fox deal happens.
Iger has a contract that runs through 2019. He has already had his deal extended multiple times, so another extension would be easy enough to complete. During Iger’s tenure, Disney has successful acquired and integrated Pixar, Marvel, and Lucasfilm into the company’s larger corporate structure. The Fox acquisition, reportedly valued at over $60 billion, would be the biggest yet.
