Jonathan S. Headley was promoted Tuesday to senior vice president and treasurer of the Walt Disney Co.
“During his 11-year tenure as assistant treasurer, Jon has shown himself to be a highly effective financial executive, and his proven expertise, leadership skills and strategic acumen make him the right choice for this role,” said Christine M. McCarthy, Disney’s senior executive vice president and chief financial officer. Headley will report directly to McCarthy, who served as treasurer before becoming CFO earlier this summer.
He will be responsible for the management and oversight of the company’s global treasury functions, including corporate finance, liquidity management, capital markets and banking activities, financial risk management, pension and investments, and global cash management.
In his most recent post, Headley led and managed corporate finance, decision support, treasury control and compliance, real estate strategy and asset management. He was previously treasurer of Hong Kong Disneyland during the park’s development.
Prior to joining Disney in 1996 as a senior analyst on its corporate finance team, Headley was an analyst at Goldman Sachs & Co. and a research associate at Harvard University, where he earned his MBA.
