Disney internally restructures and hires Apple veteran in Web 3.0 vision
Last week, Disney disclosed its hiring of Mark Bozon, the firm’s new VP of Next Generation Storytelling Creative Experiences, to assist the entertainment giant in creating Metaverse-based services.
Previously, Mark worked at Apple for twelve years. He recently worked as a Games Creative Director at its Arcade division. Bozon first announced his departure from Apple in May without disclosing his new place of work.
Additionally, Disney’s SVP of Next Generation Storytelling & Consumer Experiences, Mike White, hired Mark for Disney’s Web 3.0 push. The hiring comes after the SVPs internal promotion to focus on Metaverse content.
