Disney names new studio marketing chief

LOS ANGELES, April 21 (BestGrowthStock) – Walt Disney Co (DIS.N: )
on Wednesday named MT Carney as president of marketing for the
Walt Disney Studios, the latest appointment in a months-long
revamp of the company’s film studio.

Carney, co-founder of communications planning company Naked
NY, fills a post left vacant by Jim Gallagher, who left last
year as part of the studio overhaul.

Carney will oversee all aspects of worldwide marketing and
distribution for films released under the Walt Disney Pictures
and Touchstone Pictures banners, the company said.

“Just as we have looked at ways to restructure how we
create and distribute our movies, we also needed to hire
someone like MT, who can lead our incredibly creative global
marketing teams and ensure that our films reach audiences
around the world,” Rich Ross, chairman of the Walt Disney
Studios, said in a statement.

Prior to launching Naked, Carney was Worldwide Planning
Director at Ogilvy & Mather.
