Kevin Mayer, the chairman of Disney’s direct-to-consumer streaming division, has resigned from the company to lead TikTok as CEO of the social video app.
The unexpected move, announced this afternoon, comes a few months after Mayer was passed over for the top job at Disney following longtime Disney CEO Bob Iger’s decision to step down from the helm of the company. Disney Parks chairman Bob Chapek, another Disney veteran, was tapped for that role instead, and has been serving as CEO since February, with Iger now executive chairman.
