Disney Names Cisco Tech Officer Estrin to Its Board

June 26, 1998|From Bloomberg News

Walt Disney Co. said it elected Judith Estrin, chief technology officer at Cisco Systems Inc., to the board of the world's second-largest entertainment company.

Estrin, 43, oversees strategic technology planning, investments, acquisitions and Internet projects for San Jose-based Cisco, the nation's largest maker of equipment that links computers to the Internet.

The appointment comes a week after Disney agreed to buy 43% of Infoseek Corp., an Internet search directory, as the company tries to attract more online consumers and advertisers.

Israeli-born Estrin expands the board of the Burbank-based company to 19 members.
