Our Disney experience taught us to balance three key elements: the guest (customers), the cast (employees), and the business (financial results). This “three-legged stool” requires balanced decisions about resource allocation in order to deliver a positive return, improve the overall experience, and enhance the brand.
To keep this three-legged stool from wobbling, financial discipline must be embedded in every key decision, from large-scale capital projects to day-to-day operations. This results in informed, bottom-line decisions that are measured, modeled, and evaluated to deliver on your brand promise - profitably.
MMG experts held roles in finance, business development, and strategic planning, working on countless businesses – from start-ups like Disney Cruise Line, Shanghai Disneyland, and Disney’s PhotoPass Service to enhancements and expansions like new Disney Resorts, major theme park expansions, and Disney’s FastPass system. We are skilled strategists and leaders with the proven ability to develop sophisticated analyses to determine feasibility and returns, incubate concepts, and drive solutions that increase revenue and profits – all the while balancing the overall customer and employee experience.
And, boy, have we worked on a lot of projects that never happened!
