The move comes after Janice Marinelli was promoted last fall to president, Disney studio global in-home and digital distribution and Disney ABC North America content distribution.

MacPherson oversaw the development of Disney’s digital copy program and oversaw the studio’s loyalty rewards program.  She played a key role in overseeing the company’s DVD and Blu-ray output.
