Keen for Investment

During these difficult economic times throughout most of the world, I thought it was appropriate to have a look at this specific window on Main Street U.S.A., Disneyland Paris.

Net, Gross,
Forsgren & Green

Counselors of Investment

John Forsgren   Judson Green

"Put Your Money Where The Mouse Is"

What a fantastic window - that last line is probably overlooked by the majority of Parc Disneyland guests, but it is truly Imagineering having a good laugh!

John Forsgren was the Vice President and Treasurer of Euro Disney from 1986 to 1990. He was then promoted to Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Office of Euro Disney until 1994.

Judson Green, similarly involved in the financial side of the organisation, was the Chief Financial Officer of Disney Theme Parks from 1989 to 1991. He then became the President of Disney Theme Parks and Resort Division, holding that post until 1999. Part of Forsgren's work included expanding the Disney Company through the Disney Cruise Line, Tokyo Disneyland and Disneyland Paris (then, Euro Disney).

Two truly financially minded men who helped shape the Walt Disney Company's Theme Park Divisions in the early 1990s.
