Lisa is a consummate professional and a wonderful person. Within the span of a few years she centralized all customer support teams across Disney Interactive, deployed a world-class CRM system and was able to do so in a cost-neutral manner via operational efficiencies. She a highly effective leader of large, diverse multi-location teams and she commands the respect of her entire staff. She has my highest recommendations.

Producer at The Walt Disney Company

I have had the opportunity to work within Lisa’s leadership team for 2 years at Disney Interactive in my previous role as a Senior Product Liaison.

Lisa has an incredible ability to understand all facets of the department she leads. This ability allows her to make informed choices regarding the department’s overall direction down to the day to day operational level.

During the time I worked on her team, I had seen the department grow immensely in terms of standardization of department practices, efficiency in technologies used for support, and implementing a clearer and longer reaching strategy which aimed to support all the products at Disney Interactive.

Lisa was also a wonderful mentor. She was able to give clear and honest feedback around job performance. She values the members of her team which shows in her continual interest in seeing them achieve short term and long term career goals.

Organizational Development and Management Executive

Lisa and I worked very closely with the customer operations team at SurveyMonkey. Lisa was very dedicated to her monkeys and was always our biggest cheerleader. She was great at helping people grow in their work and discover where their talents and interest lie. Lisa came into SurveyMonkey during a crucial growing period. She spearheaded the switch of our CRM solution and got it up and running. She also helped to expand and grow the support team locally and internationally. Any time the team needed help with a project or a deadline, Lisa would help in any way either by working off-hours or in between her own projects. She is definitely a team player and a joy to work with!

Valeh Ashraf
Administrative Assistant

I had the pleasure of working with Lisa Peabody for the better part of 3 years and I was her assistant while working at Disney Interactive. I saw her take a global team that was supporting approximately 3-4 online games into a global team that supported hundreds of mobile games and apps, helped launch new game websites, and the incredibly successful Disney Infinity game, while keeping the level of service and support at the highest level of standards. She helped build a larger client base while reducing costs and had her teams giving the magical support that Disney is known for all while keeping the focus on the service to their guests and the safety of their players. She created an atmosphere of safety within her own teams so that they always knew they could turn to their leadership and get answers and results. She was sure to meet with teams and provide them insight into decisions that affected their work and hear them out on their concerns, their victories and their ideas. Her consideration and respect for her teams was an inspiring thing to witness and helped create an effective, efficient workplace. She was a great boss that made my time at Disney even more magical and I would recommend her for any type of management or leadership position. Any one would be lucky to have her on their team or leading it!

She is a driving force behind our team’s success, and really cares about each one of us individually.

Lisa is one of the best Directors I’ve ever worked for. She is very team oriented, detailed and organized. She leads with enthusiasm and has a keen ability to work smart.

During my time reporting to Lisa, I watched her grow our department from a small group of employees supporting a few online games, to a very large group of employees supporting almost all of Disney Interactive’s digital media catalog.

As a Director, Lisa was an incredible mentor and coach. She made sure that I had everything I needed to succeed in my role and always helped to create new opportunities for growth.

Her networking and relationship building skills, allow for her to create visibility and value for the department which she leads. She is an incredible asset to any team and I highly recommend her work!

I had the pleasure of working with Lisa on the management team at Netflix and during that time I found her to be intelligent, knowledgeable, hard working and committed. Lisa was well liked by both her co-workers and those who reported directly to her. She worked extremely well with others and consistently displayed highly developed organizational and leadership skills. She effectively motivated her team through coaching and by inspiring her staff Lisa insured that both service levels and goals were being met.

She proved to be a tremendous assist to Netflix and contributed to the overall success of the call center during her time there.
