Josh D’Amaro Joins the Make-A-Wish Board of Directors

We’re excited to announce that Josh D’Amaro, chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products, has joined the Make-A-Wish America National Board of Directors! A statement released today, shared in part below, shares why D’Amaro is a great fit to join this organization:

Make-A-Wish America has announced the addition of Scooter Braun, CEO and board member of HYBE America and founder of SB Projects, and Josh D’Amaro, chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products, to the national board of directors following the national board meeting on Feb. 3. Braun and D’Amaro are two of the most influential leaders at the intersection of entertainment and business. Each will bring his unique skills and respective expertise across areas of business expansion, strategy development, talent management and more to the Make-A-Wish mission to deliver the life-changing impact of a wish to more children with critical illnesses.
Josh [D’Amaro] leads a cast of more than 150,000 people – and since Disney is the world’s largest wish granter, many cast members interact with Make-A-Wish families regularly. In total, the Walt Disney Company has helped to grant more than 145,000 wishes worldwide since 1980. D’Amaro continues the Disney legacy of top executives supporting the wish-granting organization through voluntary service on national, global and chapter boards.
‘Both Disney and Make-A-Wish understand what a positive impact hope, imagination and happiness can have on the lives of seriously ill children,’ said D’Amaro. ‘It’s an honor to represent the thousands of Disney cast members around the world who create magic and help make wishes come true every day for these amazing families.’ 
The national board is made up of 24 members with diverse backgrounds and skills who can lend support in mission-critical areas such as human resources, finance, fundraising, management, marketing and operations. By leveraging the skills of some of the nation’s most talented business leaders, Make-A-Wish can get closer to its vision of granting the wish of every eligible child – an important goal considering that many children credit the wish experience with helping to save their lives.

In addition to D’Amaro, Make-A-Wish also announced the addition of American entrepreneur Scooter Braun to the Board. Braun, an entertainment executive and philanthropist, has worked in partnership with pop culture icons (that he manages), granting 546 wishes to date.
