I can confirm Claire Bilby's departure from DVC and Potrock being moved to leading DVC. Just got an email from Claire not too long ago...

I didn't doubt you one bit on this one. The George rumor has been going around and the drumbeat was only getting stronger.

Well, Walt Disney World got a good guy for president and we out west are sad to see him go. Maybe that means the giant sucking sound from Team Disney Florida will stop.

I'm not sure this is really a shakeup.
Iger has made it a goal to get his executives familiar with the different business lines by moving them around. If it's part of his management plan, then it isn't a shakeup per se'.
