Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg denies rumors of potential Disney job

40 sec read

Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg has had talks about becoming the new CEO of Disney, according to the New York Post. The 44-year-old Sandberg already sits on the Disney board and is said to have had conversations about her interest. But a source close to Sandberg says that the Post’s story is wrong. “It’s not true,” this source insists. The rumor comes on the same day as Anne Sweeney, co-chairwoman of Disney Media Networks, stepped down from her role to become a director.

Facebook’s influential chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg is staying put. A source close to Sandberg told VentureBeat late Tuesday that the highly active Facebook exec is not leaving the company to take the reigns of the Walt Disney Company when current CEO Bob Iger steps down in two years after his contract ends. The New York Post reported Tuesday that Sandberg is being eyed for the job and that she was considering the gig, a contention that was immediately dismissed as totally untrue by the source. “There have been no conversations with Disney. It’s not true. It’s a false rumor,” the source told VentureBeat.
