A 22-year company veteran and graduate of the UCLA Anderson School of Management was Wednesday named senior vice president and treasurer of The Walt Disney Co.
Carlos A. Gomez, who has held the post of vice president, Investor Relations, since 2011, succeeds Jonathan S. Headley, who is retiring after 24 years with the company.
Gomez will report directly to Christine M. McCarthy, senior executive vice president and chief financial officer, who said his “leadership skills, breadth of experience, intellectual curiosity, and financial and strategic acumen make him the perfect choice as the company’s next treasurer.”
“Carlos also has benefited from working closely with Jon and members of his team, gaining valuable insight into their operations,” she said.
Gomez will be responsible for management and oversight of the company’s global treasury organization, which includes corporate finance, liquidity management, capital markets and banking activities, interest rate and foreign currency risk management, enterprise project and structured finance, pension and investments, enterprise consumer payments, and global cash management and treasury operations.
He will also be responsible for managing the company’s relationships with its banking partners and the credit rating agencies.
Prior to becoming VP of Investor Relations, Gomez was a member of the Corporate Finance team from 2002 to 2011, and before that was director, Corporate Finance, for five years. He joined the company in 1995 as an analyst in the Financial Risk Management group.
Before coming to Disney, he was an associate in the investment banking division of Goldman Sachs & Co.
