Susette Hsiung

As laser-focused on details as she is her budget, Hsiung has overseen production for more than three dozen live-action and animated series and movies on Disney Channel, Disney XD and Disney Junior, including “Adventures in Babysitting,” among the top cable telecasts of 2016 for kids and tweens. Always juggling a full plate, she also oversaw production on the music-filled original movie sequel “Descendants 2.” For a character that shows the kinds of women Hsiung likes to see, she looks no further than Disney’s own Elena of Avalor, noting, “She is brave, confident and focused on her growth as a leader. She is not a princess that needs a prince. Elena is a role model for girls and boys alike.”
