BURBANK, May 13—Zenia Mucha has been promoted to senior vice president of corporate communications at The Walt Disney Company, a newly expanded position that includes responsibility for the communications policies and strategic positioning of Disney and its global business segments, which include media networks, parks and resorts, studio entertainment and consumer products.
 
Mucha will oversee media relations, financial communications and employee communications, in addition to setting direction for overall corporate positioning, and will be the company’s chief spokesperson. She takes over from John Dreyer, who is leaving the company to pursue other opportunities. Dreyer will be a consultant to the company on communications issues.
 
Dreyer is the second senior corporate communications professional to leave Disney in recent months, following the departure of vice president Christine Castro to take on the senior communications role at Yahoo!
According to Disney chairman and CEO Michael Eisner, “Zenia is nationally recognized as one of the most strategic and forward-thinking communications professionals in America today. In every position throughout her career, she’s earned the respect both of her peers and of the national media. She also has an impressive track record of leadership in both the public and private sectors.”
Mucha had been senior vice president, communications, for the ABC Broadcast Group and the ABC Television Network since joining the company in February 2001. She will continue to have an active role in the overall communications management for the network.    
 
Earlier in her career Mucha served first as director of communications and then as senior policy advisor to Governor George Pataki of New York, and was communications director to former United States Senator Alfonse D’Amato.
