We've just learned that Steven Clark, head of D23, has resigned from the Disney Company to pursue new interests. We've always been fond of Steven and are sorry to hear that he's leaving. But the group is in very capable hands at the moment and in no urgent need to replace their departing leader.
Least any of you think that the writing is on the wall that D23 is soon to be no more, I can assure you that they have a very strong lease on life following the D23 Expo (which was viewed internally as a success). With two D23 Expos in the planning (one in Japan and the next one in Anaheim) plus a Treasures of the Disney Archives exhibit in Chicago, massive membership boost following the free membership campaign, D23 is here to stay (at least for now).
While it's always possible that whomever gets the job might lead the group in new directions, it's pretty clear that it's business as usual for D23 at the moment. There will no doubt be rumors to the contrary, but our very well placed sources indicate nothing of concern.
