We often see a shuffle in the pack each year and often when I retirement occurs it means that people can move into their shoes and promotions of others occur. Here is the latest reshuffle:
Epcot VP Erin Youngs will take up a new role of VP of Construction, Horticulture, Textile Services and Distribution Services. She replaces Greg Ruse who is retiring.
Tom Fitzgerald will take on a new creative lead role in Epcot. This adds to rumours of the reworking of Epcot to it’s original vision by putting an experienced Imagineer in charge. Tom will keep his lead creative role for Disneyland Paris at present.
Sam Lau will become VP of Epcot and oversee it’s day to day running.
Jason Kirk will take up the role of vice president, Transportation Operations that has been left vacant by Sam.
Finally, Imagineer Scott Trowbridge will be moving to a new Star Wars Project Studio that will solely take care of the franchise. He will continue his role as creative and portfolio leader of Disneyland
