Rafael Ribeiro, Disney’s former assistant general counsel of global ethics and compliance, returned to the media giant last month as associate general counsel and deputy chief compliance officer.
Ribeiro rejoined Disney in July after a seven-month stint as a partner at law firm Hogan Lovells, according to his LinkedIn profile and registration with the Florida bar. He had held his prior role at Disney from June 2021 until January.
Disney did not respond to a request to confirm his appointment.
In March, Disney reportedly parted ways with CCO Alicia Schwarz, whose responsibilities were assumed by General Counsel Horacio Gutierrez. Whether the company will name a new CCO or reestablish the role remains to be seen.
Disney began a round of 7,000 layoffs in March, cost reductions that contributed to an approximately $150 million improvement in operating losses for the third quarter compared to Q2, according to an Aug. 9 earnings presentation.
The company disclosed further decreases in domestic subscribers to its streaming services Disney+ and ESPN+ versus the prior quarter.
