Ayo Davis

Davis knows what kids—and families—like, and she delivers. Be it putting new spins on iconic Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars characters, rebooting fan favorites like the “Goosebumps” and “Percy Jackson” franchises or developing mega-hits like “Bluey” and “Kiff,” she always has the entire Disney audience in mind. “Elton John Live: Farewell from Dodger Stadium” landed John the E in his EGOT. One of many things Davis has planned for 2024: reviving the classic animated series “Phineas and Ferb.”

Business speak phrase or buzzword I find most annoying: “Put a pin in it.”

Do you personally still have a traditional cable video package? Yes, I do! Although my family subscribes to most streaming networks, I still rely on my traditional cable video package, particularly for watching the news.

Book, movie or TV series that greatly influenced my leadership style: “Leaders Eat Last” by Simon Sinek

TV series everyone should binge: “Percy Jackson and the Olympians”

If you were a social media influencer, what product would you peddle? Disney+ 😉

Favorite way to destress? Immersing myself in a captivating Korean drama series while indulging in a glass of cabernet sauvignon.
