Bob Iger named as part of Donald Trump's policy forum
POSTED 06 Dec 2016 . BY Tom Anstey
Disney CEO Bob Iger will be part of President-elect Donald Trump’s strategic and policy forum, with the first meeting to take place in February.

The only entertainment and media executive on the list of 17, Iger’s Disney has enjoyed continued growth under his leadership, recently breaking records on revenue and income in its latest earnings report, also announcing various major expansion plans worldwide.

Chaired by Stephen. A Schwarzman, chair and CEO of The Blackstone Group, members of the forum “will be charged with providing their individual views to the President – informed by their unique vantage points in the private sector – on how government policy impacts economic growth, job creation, and productivity.”

The forum will bring together CEOs and business leaders “who know what it takes to create jobs and drive economic growth,” according to Trump.

According to a statement, the forum is designed to provide direct input to the President “from many of the best and brightest in the business world in a frank, non-bureaucratic, and non-partisan manner.”

Iger was an active supporter of Hillary Clinton in the recent Presidential race, also acting as a member of President Barack Obama’s export council.

“The forum provides a non-partisan approach to key economic policy issues, reflecting an array of individual perspectives from a cross-section of industries,” said Iger. “I welcome the chance to be part of the important discussions about the most effective ways to grow jobs and expand economic opportunity in America.”
