Disney announced some personnel moves Wednesday in the top executive ranks at Walt Disney Studios, naming studio President Alan Bergman co-chairman of Walt Disney Studios alongside Alan Horn.

The company also expanded Horn’s role, making him the newly appointed chief content officer of the company, Variety reports.

“Bergman has been a crucial behind-the-scenes operator at Disney since assuming the role of president in 2005,” Variety notes. “He has led the integration of acquisition labels like Pixar Animation Studios and Marvel Studios, and overseen the assumption of Lucasfilm with Horn.”

Both Horn and Bergman have been involved in folding in the film assets of 20th Century Fox, which Disney recently acquired.

“As co-chairmen, Bergman and Horn will jointly oversee Disney’s film, music, and theater groups, as well as global marketing, distribution, communications, and human resources departments,” Variety reports. “Bergman will continue to oversee the business groups including operations, technology, business and legal affairs, labor relations, and finance.”

Horn has been chairman since 2012, reporting to Disney CEO Bob Iger.
