Hold That Iger - New York Post, 1/26/06
QuikQuote: Disney Chairman George Mitchell quashed a negative evaluation of Bob Iger by the media giant's executive search firm Heidrick & Struggles last year and never brought the report to the full board, sources familiar with the matter told The Post.
The banished report which few members of Disney's board even knew existed raises new questions about the legitimacy of Disney's search for Michael Eisner's replacement. Sources said Mitchell felt the report, brought to him by Heidrick & Struggles' Senior Chairman Gerard Roche, was too negative on Iger, who was the preferred candidate of both Mitchell and Eisner to take Disney's reins.
