RUMOR: Kathleen Kennedy to Succeed Bob Iger as Disney CEO in 2015?
Reported by Justin on 22 Apr 2013 14:31

While this article posted over on Variety has a general negative tone in comparing current Disney CEO Bog Iger to former General Electric CEO Jack Welsh in terms of how they dealt with massive layoffs in their respective companies, it does contain one rather intriguing statement that should put a smile on the face of all fellow Star Wars fans.

With Iger's tenure as Disney's CEO set to end in 2015, talks of who will be succeeding him in this same role have surfaced, and a familiar name is rumored to be in consideration:

Many expect theme park and resorts chief Thomas Staggs to land the CEO role, although there are rumblings that Lucasfilm’s Kathleen Kennedy also may now be in the running.
