This week two important events regarding the Disney Company will/have occcured. 1. Michael Eisner will officially be stepping down as CEO, and 2. The newest members of the Disney Legends program will be inducted in a ceremony at Disneyland.
Thus, an interesting question can be derived from these two events. Do you think Michael Eisner should be inducted into the Disney Legend program?
The reason I ask, is that although Eisner in recent years (post Frank Wells era) has led the company to numerous and questionable ventures (i.e. purchasing of Fox Family, Sports Franchises, Building less than spectacular themeparks, and gutting animation and imagineering) their have been some upsides to his tenure as well (i.e. Reinventing the Disney name, the proposed Disney Decade, the animation musicals of the early 90's, etc.).
In my personal opinion I believe that the Disney Company will induct Eisner as a Disney Legend. Although it probably wont happen relatively too soon, the fact that the program has inducted past Disney Corporate Execs, such as Frank Wells and Card Walker, makes it very probable that everyone's favorite CEO (yes I'm being sarcastic) will eventually be inducted into the program.
So, what are your thoughts???? Do you think he should be inducted?
