Bob Iger passes on the secret handshake and the keys to Walt’s cryogenic vault to Bob Chapek.

BURBANK, CA — With the naming of Bob “Robert” Chapek as the new CEO of the Disney Company, the tradition continues of having only people named “Bob” as the chief executive for the company. Rooted in a desire to honor the company’s founder, Bob “Walt” Disney, the tradition first really took hold with the naming of Bob “Michael” Eisner in 1984 and his replacement Bob “Robert” Iger in 2005.
Bob Chapek is no stranger to our reporters here at Uncle Walt’s Insider, having been a source for our articles (usually without his knowledge) many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many times. We’re a little put out that he didn’t mention us in his acceptance speech.
Meanwhile, we’re delighted to remind our readers that Iger will soon be joining the staff of Uncle Walt’s Insider!
