Walt Disney Studios

Alan Horn is chairman of Walt Disney Studios, overseeing worldwide production, distribution, and marketing for live-action and animated films from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, and Lucasfilm, as well as marketing and distribution for DreamWorks Studios films released under the Touchstone Pictures banner.

He also co-founded Castle Rock Entertainment and served as its chairman and chief executive. He is a co-founder of the Environmental Media Association and vice chairman of the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC). He will take over as NRDC chairman this year.
