Zenia Mucha's role as head of communications for The Walt Disney Company reaches across a diverse number of strategic global divisions, including media networks, parks and resorts, studio entertainment, and consumer products. The company made various high-profile announcements in those areas in the last few months, including breaking ground in Shanghai on the first Disney theme park to be built in mainland China and selling its Miramax Films division to Filmyard Holdings for about $660 million in mid-2010.
Mucha joined the company in May 2002 as SVP, corporate communications. Prior to Disney, she held senior communications roles at ABC. She also has vast experience in politics, serving as senior policy advisor to former Gov. George Pataki (R-NY) and man-aging US Sen. Alfonse D'Amato's (R-NY) successful reelection campaigns in 1986 and 1992.
