March 3, 2004 – George J. Mitchell is Elected Chairman of The Walt Disney Company

On March 3, 2004, former U.S. Senator Majority Leader George J. Mitchell was elected chairman of The Walt Disney Company. Mitchell joined The Walt Disney Company in 1995, having been elected to the board; he was named the presiding director on December 3, 2002. His tenure as chairman wasn’t without controversy, as the company was going through a period of turmoil, which included the ousting of then-CEO Michael Eisner. Mitchell departed from his role at Disney on December 31, 2007.
