I know folks on some other boards aren't keen on him, but he's done exactly what a CEO should do- increase holdings and profits. He's very much a numbers guy, and when he was brought on board, that was exactly what the company needed. Now, when Iger steps down, we can hopefully get someone similar to 80s-90s Eisner, who was a projects guy who took a keen interest in the parks.

I agree, Matt. I preferred Eisner-the-early-years to Bob's reign, but after Frank Wells died and Katzenberg left, Eisner started to do all kinds of goofy stuff and I definitely prefer Bob's leadership to that era of instability. It would be awesome to get another guy who runs the company the way Eisner started out when Bob is no longer at the helm. I could see John Lasseter filling this role effectively.
