Thomas O. Staggs (born 1961) is the chairman of the Walt Disney Company's Parks and Resorts division.


Joining Disney in 1990, Staggs rose from his role as a manager of strategic planning to senior vice president of strategic planning and development in 1995.[3] Staggs became executive vice president and chief financial officer in 1998, and became Senior Executive Vice President and CFO in January, 2000.[4]

On November 11, 2009 the Los Angeles Times reported that Staggs and Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Jay Rasulo were trading places on January 1, 2010.
