Through a report, it has been found that Kevin Mayer the executive of Disney has left his post of entertainment just to become the CEO of social media platform that is Tiktok. Ergo, the veteran of Disney Rebecca Campbell is going to succeed him as chairman of direct to consumer and international. In a statement on Monday, Mayer said that I’m very much proud that extraordinarily talented direct-to-consumer and international team has accomplished and developed such a nice streaming service through this entertaining platform of Disney+. But now he said that I’m going to leave this entertaining platform because I’m going to be the CEO of Tiktok.
Furthermore, he said that the app suppressed around 2 billion downloads and said that I’m also going to serve the CEO of Bytedance. Kevin Mayer will report to both “the founder of Bytedance and CEO Yiming Zhang” and are going to face a tough task of Tiktok related concerns. The U.S. regulators of Tiktok are searching and finding whether the app is a national security risk because in March some new complaints were hit about this fast-growing social media platform. Yiming said that Kevin is going to be one of the best people to handle this mission very carefully. He further says that Kevin is having good experience in building a successful global business as he was one of the most accomplished entertainment executives. Lastly, he said, “I would like to work closely with Kevin on the global development of Tiktok and for the next chapter of Bytedance story”.
The departure of Kevin Mayer from Disney comes three months after he passed as successor over CEO Bob Iger. Kevin Mayer says that is was very outstanding and fun to be a part of this iconic Walt Disney Co. He also thanked CEO Bob Iger and Bob Chapek for their trust, confidence, and collaboration, and even for their support from so many years. Everyone gave Mayer blessings as he is now the CEO of Tiktok.
