Walt Disney Studios has ushered in a new president of worldwide marketing. Ricky Strauss, a Hollywood veteran, has been named to replace MT Carney in that role.
Up until his recent naming as Disney Studios' top marketing exec, Strauss was the president of Participant Media. Under his seven year tenure there, he was responsible for production and marketing of the studio's "socially responsible" pictures. Prior to that, Strauss spent time as a marketing executive with Columbia Pictures.
