Don Escen
Bob Thomas

Former financial administrator and company treasurer Don Escen was a key member of "Roy's Boys," and ably assisted Roy 0. Disney in successfully navigating the Company through some difficult times after Walt Disney's untimely death in 1966.

Charged with overseeing the Company's financial affairs in Burbank, and its film distribution and merchandising offices overseas, Don was respected by all who worked with him. Barbara Wilcox, his assistant from 1965-1984, recalled:

"Executives liked dealing with Don because he was always a fair- minded and logical person. He had a good, sensible head and I think Roy respected him for that, and asked his advice on a lot of occasions."
