Here is the full letter from Mazloum:
It is my pleasure to announce that Bill Diercksen, a longtime leader with Disney, has been promoted to head up Disney Vacation Club as its new senior vice president and general manager. He follows in the footsteps of Terri Schultz, who many of you have gotten to know and who has done a tremendous job of leading the team.
Terri, I’m pleased to say, is moving into another very important role within our organization, serving as senior vice president of Commercial Strategy for all of our Disney Signature Experiences businesses, including DVC. Her extensive background in operations, strategic planning and finance makes her an ideal executive to lead this significant body of work as we grow and innovate in the years ahead.
I’ll tell you that Bill is an extraordinary leader as well – and no stranger to Disney Vacation Club. He is the perfect person to usher DVC into the future. A 20-year Cast Member, Bill most recently served as vice president of finance for our Disney Signature Experiences portfolio of vacation experiences after working for several years as a director at Disney Vacation Club. Some of you may have spoken to Bill at the annual condominium association meetings, aboard the Member Cruises and at Moonlight Magic events, where he has always enjoyed meeting with Member families.
Bill is very passionate about DVC and is absolutely dedicated to delivering the most magical Member and Guest experiences while bringing new perspectives and creativity to our organization. I know that he will continue to chart a course for success at DVC and build on the many strides that Terri and the team accomplished over the past few years.
