Disney+ Executive Swaps Sides
Ms. Cipriani joined Apple earlier in May (via Bloomberg News). She worked at Disney for over 10 years. In that time she managed DisneyLife and rose to become vice president of Disney+ International.
Battle For Media Talent
The move is a further bolstering of media talent at Apple, as the company prepares to launch its Apple TV+ service and compete with Netflix and others. In April, it made two significant media hires. First Molly Thompson, the founder of A&E Indie Films, joined as head of documentaries. Days later, Lionsgate veteran Danielle DePalma arrived as a senior film and TV series marketing executive.
