Disney Entertainment Television has roped in Jen Reberger as its senior vice president-HR. After having worked for the brand for 15 years earlier, Reberger is coming back after working as the vice president of human resources for global functions at Medtronic for a short spell where she was responsible for developing HR strategies for various corporate divisions.
Reberger will take over from Sonia Coleman who was recently promoted to the position of senior vice president and chief human resources officer for The Walt Disney Company. Her appointment will take effect on May 1 disclosed Dana Walden, co-chairman, Disney Entertainment, in a staff memo.
Throughout her 15 years at Disney, Reberger progressed in her career by taking on various human resources and DE&I leadership positions across several divisions, including consumer products, digital games, television, and streaming content. Her most recent role was vice president of human resources for Disney’s TV division.
In her new role, Reberger’s duties will include overseeing all HR-related aspects of the business, such as supporting various operations, implementing diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives, managing employee development and engagement, recruiting and compensating employees, acquiring new talent, developing learning opportunities, and managing employee relationships for all of the company’s brands and divisions.
In a staff memo, Dana Walden stated that Jen Reberger’s expertise, understanding, and enthusiasm for cultivating a culture of excellence and teamwork will be extremely beneficial to their organisation. “As Sonia transitions into her new position, our goal was to find someone who could quickly step into her old role, working with all of us, and I have no doubt that Jen is that person. She is accustomed to our business and how we function, and many of you already have a relationship with her. I’m confident that Jen will continue to build on the foundation laid during her previous tenure here and be instrumental in helping pave an exciting path forward,” said Dana Walden, co-chairman, Disney Entertainment, in the memo.
