Hasbro's CEO passed away
« on: October 13, 2021, 05:42:56 AM »
I saw this on a Transformers website, but here is the press release: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20211012006149/en/

He was only 58, apparently he had been battling cancer.  He was the executive producer for the new MLP movie...I hope he saw it as a success before he passed (maybe he had more important things on his mind though).  RIP

Goldner became CEO in 2008, meaning he would have overseen the company through the life and death of the Hub network, MLP's explosion in popularity in the 2010s, and two whole MLP generational shifts! That's a lot just from the MLP side of things.

I'm not a corporate minded person, generally. But this man oversaw some important things. May his memory and legacy be a blessing.

I didn’t see that because we watch ITV News.

A mother pony can be protective of her young just like dogs.

That is a lot!  And a lot on the Transformers side of things, too, since the first live action movie came out just around when he would have started.  He must have been super busy...I guess that is a given for a CEO, but still.
