Everson has been a top executive at Facebook and Instacart.

Disney’s move to expand the board is supported by Third Point LLC, an investor that took a large stake in Disney in August. Third Point made suggestions that include spinning off ESPN and folding Hulu into Disney+.

“We have a productive and collegial relationship with Third Point, with whom we share a deep commitment to continue building on Disney’s many successes and increasing shareholder value,” CEO Bob Chapek said in a prepared statement.
