TikTok taps Disney streaming chief Kevin Mayer as CEO

Disney streaming chief Kevin Mayer, who was one of the top candidates for Disney’s CEO job earlier this year, has been named CEO of short-form video app TikTok.

Mayer, who oversaw the launch of the Disney+ streaming service, will start on June 1. He will also serve as the chief operating officer of ByteDance, the Chinese tech conglomerate that owns TikTok.

Rebecca Campbell, a 23-year Disney veteran who most recently served as president of Disneyland Resort, will succeed Mayer as chairman of direct-to-consumer and international.
