A few days ago , Chapek and NFL Pats owner Robert Kraft spoke at an executive meeting with others in Boston. Chapek admitted even after working almost 30 years with TWDC, he was in a baptism by fire when he became CEO when the pandemic hit and the decision to close 80% of TWDC . The way that Disney navigated through the pandemic and continues to do so, including a number of cast that lost their jobs will be discussed in college business classrooms in case studies for years to come.The difference with Chapek is that he's now in a position to speak his mind and the big decisions are under his rule and watch. So, the things we all hate are in his lap. Those under him, might agree with what he's doing, or, they might not -- we don't know. As employees who wish to retain their jobs, they do what he says in either case and don't publicly disagree with their boss.
