Disney has promoted Alisa Bowen, most recently svp operations for Disney Streaming, to the newly created position of evp business operations.
Continuing to report to Michael Paull, Bowen’s responsibilities will include overseeing content operations and business development for Disney’s entire direct-to-consumer distribution portfolio, which includes Disney+, Hulu, ESPN+ and Star+.
Bowen first joined Disney in 2017 as svp, CTO and head of digital media for Disney’s international operations before joining the streaming division in 2018. Prior to Disney, Bowen spent four years at News Corp Australia, where she served as CTO of the company.
His new role at Disney comes amid a recent leadership reorganization of the company’s streaming organization, which saw Paull installed as president of Disney Streaming and Joe Earley named president of Hulu.
“Alisa has been central to the successful launch and scale of Disney+ and our global operations. His relentless focus on getting the right processes in place has been crucial to our success over the past few years,” Paull said in a note to staff. “Alisa and her team have been instrumental in our success to date, and I’m excited to see what she will accomplish next in this new, expanded scope.”
