This past weekend, the Producers Guild of America (PGA) recognized Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger with its Milestone Award during the 25th Annual Producers Guild Awards Ceremony at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
The Milestone Award is the PGA’s highest honor and recognizes individuals or teams who have made historic contributions to the entertainment industry. Walt Disney himself was a recipient of this prestigious honor in February 1957 for his “historic contribution to the American Motion Picture.”
“I’ve had the great privilege of working with some of the world’s best storytellers,” Bob says. “I am constantly inspired by the creativity and innovation at Disney, as thousands of people around the world work together to tell great stories in spectacular new ways. Disney has redefined what’s possible and raised the standard of excellence in entertainment. We continue to strive to live up to that legacy, and it’s very rewarding to see our efforts recognized in such a meaningful way by the Producers Guild of America.”
