Agnes Chu, a 12-year Disney veteran, is leaving as senior VP of content for Disney Plus to join Condé Nast as head of the media and publishing company’s entertainment division.
Chu will start as president of Condé Nast Entertainment in September 2020, reporting to Condé Nast CEO Roger Lynch. There’s no immediate word on a replacement at Disney for Chu, who will work with Ricky Strauss, president of content and marketing for Disney Plus, on a transition plan over the next month.
With Chu’s appointment, current CNE president Oren Katzeff is moving into a new role at the company, according to a Condé Nast spokesperson, who did not have details on what Katzeff’s new role is. Katzeff, who joined the company in November 2018, came under fire last month after allegations of racial discrimination in Condé Nast’s video department.
Disney has not named a replacement for Chu as of yet.
