After reading some threads and posts that are critical of current and past Disney executives (including Al's latest update), I Googled former DLR President Matt Ouimet to see if there was any news about his work at Starwood Hotels. To my surprise, I found out he was replaced as President of the Starwood Hotel Group just over a month ago [Starwood press release here].
If I'm reading the corporate verbiage correctly, it seems like he was let go and did not depart on his own volition. Has anyone heard any details? It's very unfortunate, but Matt joins former executives Pressler and Harris as having a difficult time in their immediate post-Disney careers.
Would there be any chance for him to return in some capacity at Disney? It would seem unlikely with Rasulo still in charge of Parks and Resorts, but we can all hope, right?
