Former Disney head Michael Eisner is leaving one more mark on the company.
The Walt Disney Co. headquarters building in Burbank, Calif., was renamed today as "Team Disney -- The Michael D. Eisner Building."
Eisner was chief executive office of the company for 21 years until he retired last fall, with a year left in his contract, after surviving a board of directors revolt that attempted to oust him in 2004. Disney Chairman George Mitchell said the board of directors voted unanimously to name the building for Eisner.
"For 21 years, Michael was the leader of the team that reinvigorated this company and put the magic back in Disney, so it is appropriate that this building will now carry his name," Mitchell said.
