Carter is the first African American to hold this position. In 2008, he was appointed as the Vice President of Disney's Hollywood Studios. Carter's non-traditional style of leading has separated himself from the rest.[1] In his position as vice president of Disney's Epcot, he led the teams responsible for driving catering sales, services and banquet operations, and for theme park event operations at the 40-square-mile park and resort.[2]
