Disney’s National Geographic has announced that it has promoted Elita Adjei to the newly created role of Vice President of Corporate Communications for National Geographic Content. She has previously worked as the director of Communications and Publicity at Disney Media Entertainment & Distribution, where she oversaw communications for the eight owned ABC stations.

Elita Adjei will be responsible for the overall communications strategy for the brand, and will lead internal communications for the organization, as well as external communications focused on driving alignment and integrated messaging around overall strategy and goals, DEI initiatives, and internal culture. She will oversee executive communications, working with Pam Levine and her team, who remain responsible for the marketing and publicity of Nat Geo programming.

In her new role, she will report to both Courteney Monroe, president of Nat Geo Content, and Charissa Gilmore, senior vice president of Corporate Communications, Disney General Entertainment. The two said in a joint statement:

“Elita’s force of nature approach to her work is a perfect fit for National Geographic. Her passion and creativity set her strategies apart and drive results, while her motivating energy is absolutely contagious. We’re excited to start our work together.”

Elita Adjei also said in a statement:

“It has been an honor leading corporate communications for ABC Owned Television Stations these past couple of years, and I’m proud of what we accomplished together during the global pandemic. While I’ve had the privilege of leading corporate communication strategies in diverse industries, I could not be more pleased to grow within The Walt Disney Company and to lead corporate communications for the award-winning iconic National Geographic Content. I’m thrilled to work directly with Courteney, Charissa and the talented executives and teams across Disney General Entertainment and National Geographic Content.”
