Robert Allen "Bob" Iger is the chairman and former CEO of The Walt Disney Company. He served as president since 2000, and CEO from 2005-2020, replacing Michael Eisner. He was the president of ABC in 1994 and remained president when Disney bought it in 1996, but then resigned as president in 1999 to oversee Disney's international operations.

He oversaw the acquisition of Pixar in 2006, following a period of strained relations with the animation studio. He also led the company to acquire Marvel Entertainment in 2009, Lucasfilm in 2012, and 21st Century Fox in 2017 further broadening the Disney Company's character franchises.

In 2020, he will be inducted into the American Television Hall of Fame.

On February 25, 2020, Iger announced he would step down as CEO of The Walt Disney Company, effective immediately, and named Bob Chapek of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products, as his successor, making him the 7th CEO in the company's history. Iger will continue to serve as Executive Chairman on Disney's Board of Directors through the end of his contract with the company on December 31, 2021 to assist Chapek with the transition.
