Disney has reorganized execs on its streaming team in recent months, having named Paull president of Disney Streaming (which includes Disney+, Hulu, ESPN+, and Star+) in January. At that time, the company also named former Disney+ EVP of marketing and operations John Earley president of Hulu. Earley succeeded Kelly Campbell, who departed in October to become president of Peacock.
“Alisa has played a pivotal role in the successful launch and scaling of Disney+ and our global operations,” Paull wrote in a memo to staffers obtained by the Reporter. “Her relentless focus on ensuring we have the right processes in place has been crucial to our success these last few year.”
