Disney has named Joe Earley, a former executive at Disney Plus, to the position of president of Hulu.
After joining the company in January of this year, Earley was promoted to the position of EVP marketing and operations at Disney Plus. In his new role at Hulu, Earley will be tasked with building the service's brand and will work with its various content studios.
Disney continues to rally resources around its streaming business as part of a reorganization. Michael Paull has been appointed to the role of president of Disney's overall streaming business. Paull will be in charge of the company's streaming services. Paull will report to Daniel.
The leadership for Disney's streaming business is being shuffled.
Rebecca Campbell was named chairman of the company's international content business, having previously served as chairman of international operations and direct-to-consumer. The new role is reporting to Disney's boss. Campbell has been with the company for 25 years.
As part of the executive shuffle, Disney will need to find a new leader for Disney Plus. The growth of Disney's streaming business was made possible by the acquisition of Bamtech Media by Paull. He was an executive with the Channels arm of Amazon.
Daniel said that Michael Paull has deep experience in the world of streaming and is an accomplished leader with a passion for this business and a proven track record of building and expanding their streaming operations. The integration of Disney's streaming platforms will allow us to create an even more compelling value proposition for consumers.
