Chief Information Officer Diane Jurgens Leaves Disney

The Walt Disney Company

Disney’s Chief Information Officer (CIO), Diane Jurgens, has left the company. The Walt Streety Journal is reporting that Jurgens left the company last month. In an email to employees, she said that she was leaving Disney “to pursue new adventures.”

Jurgens joined The Walt Disney Company in October 2020 under then Disney CEO Bob Chapek. Jurgens reported to then CFO Christine McCarthy. Jurgens replaced the previous Chief Information Officer Susan O’Day who had retired earlier in 2020.

The exit of Jurgens follows the departure of CFO Christine McCarthy earlier this summer. The Chief Diversity Officer Latondra Newton also departed this summer. At this time, none of these positions have been permanently filled following the departures. Kevin Lansberry, the interim CFO, sent an internal memo to Disney’s technology teams that Diane Arnold, senior VP for Core Systems and Platforms, would assume the role of interim leader for enterprise technology. Arnold will remain in the role while Disney searches for a permanent new Chief Information Officer.
