EVP, Digital, Disney-ABC Television Group

Cheng always clocks in near the top of our list, and here’s why: He’s a lofty visionary who also has the business acumen to get products and services launched on the ground. No small task when your launch pad is the massive ABC-Disney group. After soaring success with the Watch Disney TVE products in 2012, Cheng took a crack at Watch ABC this year—even sooner than his team had planned to. And now device-based access to ABC’s 24-hour feed is already available in all eight ABC-owned local station markets. Cheng also has his hands all over the company’s social media strategy and other multiplatform distribution models. Known as a strong team player, Cheng says: “An incredible mentorship experience happens when there is a two-way exchange and learning on both sides.”
