In a press release, Hasbro said Goldner is “undergoing continued medical care” following an August 2020 disclosure that he was seeking treatment for cancer in 2014. He has been the toymaker’s CEO since 2008 and its chairman since 2015.
Rich Stoddart will serve as the interim CEO during Goldner’s leave. He most recently served as lead independent director of the company’s board.
“I feel confident knowing the company will be in the skilled hands of Rich Stoddart as interim CEO, our highly experienced management team and the best employees in the business,” Goldner said in a press release, adding that the company’s future “couldn’t be brighter.”
