Disney has named Alexia Quadrani as its new head of investor relations. Quadrani, who replaces the departed Lowell Singer, most recently served as managing director and senior analyst for J.P. Morgan’s U.S. media equity research group. She will report directly to Disney CFO Christine McCarthy.
“Alexia is a highly skilled financial professional whose expertise as an industry analyst and strong network of relationships across the investment community make her an excellent choice to lead our investor relations team,” McCarthy said in a statement. “I am confident that Alexia’s deep knowledge of the media sector, and Disney’s business in particular, make her especially well-suited to communicate our long-term strategy and financial performance to the investor community, and I am very excited to welcome her to my team.”
Quadrani will serve as Disney’s information liaison to the global investment community, while working as a key advisor and resource to the company’s senior management team. Her responsibilities include expanding the Disney’s relationships with sell-side and buy-side investment analysts, industry analysts, and investors worldwide. She will also provide input on the company’s financial reporting activities, manage stock share administration, and lead ongoing engagement with the governance community and environmental, social, and governance (ESG) focused investors.
While at J.P. Morgan, Quadrani’s coverage included entertainment, advertising and video game stocks. She joined J.P. Morgan in 2008 through its merger with Bear Stearns, where she had served as senior managing director since 1997. She was an institutional investor-ranked analyst for over 20 years.
Quadrani holds an MBA in finance from New York University’s Stern School of Business and a B.S. from the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University.
