Bloomberg: Disney is combining two businesses with increasing overlap — consumer products and interactive units — into a single operation to be led jointly by the current heads of the two divisions. The new Disney Consumer Products & Interactive Media will be run by Leslie Ferraro, who became president of consumer products in May, and Jimmy Pitaro, who held the same post at Disney Interactive. The company created a laboratory within the new division to develop high-tech toys. Combining the units “simplifies the reporting structure.”
