LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Walt Disney Co.’s chief financial officer, Jay Rasulo, will resign at the end of June.
Once considered a possible candidate to replace CEO Bob Iger when Iger retires in 2018, Rasulo’s resignation paves the path to Disney’s top job for Tom Staggs, who became chief operating officer in February.
Disney has not officially named a successor to Iger.
A new chief financial officer was not immediately named Monday.
Rasulo, who joined Disney in 1986, had been chairman of Disney’s parks and resorts division and became CFO five years ago. He was also recently responsible for overseeing operations at YouTube channel operator Maker Studios.
