Picture Motion, which develops advocacy and marketing campaigns for films, television and entertainment, hires Brian Walker as chief executive officer.

Walker comes to the agency from the Walt Disney Company, where he most recently served as a stakeholder engagement leader in its enterprise diversity and inclusion group, advising senior corporate leaders and business unit leaders on their multicultural and social justice competency development and strategic external relations.

Before coming to Disney, he was culture and entertainment advocacy director for online racial justice organization Color of Change. He has also worked at Participant Media as director, digital strategy and partnerships.

Walker will join Picture Motion COO Juliette Richey on the leadership team to oversee the company’s vision, business strategy and partnerships. Picture Motion founder Christie Marchese and president Wendy Cohen are transitioning to advisory roles on the board of directors.

"Brian Walker is a true visionary, an outstanding collaborator, and has long been a leader in this space. The combination of Brian and Juliette’s leadership will undoubtedly usher in a new and exciting phase for Picture Motion," said Marchese and Cohen.
