February 23, 2004 – Fortune Magazine Reports: Disney is America’s Most Admired Entertainment Company

“That other entertainment industry executives recognized this by voting Disney No. 1 in our industry is a tribute to the hard work of our incredible creative and dedicated cast members and employees.” – Michael Eisner, Disney Chairman and CEO

On February 23, 2004, Fortune Magazine published a list of America’s Most Admired Companies, with The Walt Disney Company taking the number one spot. This list was based on a survey of top members of the entertainment industry, including executives, directors, and securities analysts. 2003 had been a year of growth for the company, particularly through investments in live action films (such as the first installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean series), as well as the continued success of their partner studio Pixar (which released Finding Nemo in that year). Stocks also rose 43% during the calendar year.
