Kenneth Jeffrey Feld (born 1948 in Washington, DC) is the CEO of Feld Entertainment, which owns Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey Circus, Disney on Ice!, Doodlebops Live! and Disney Live! He is also the producer of several Broadway plays. The business was started by his father Irvin Feld and Ken became CEO upon his father's death in 1984.

He graduated from the Boston University School of Management in 1970 with a Management degree (Feld is currently a member of the BU Board of Trustees).[1] According to a 2004 article in Forbes Magazine, he was worth $775 million and lives in Potomac, Maryland. His mother committed suicide in 1958 so he and his sister Karen were raised by their aunt and uncle.[2]

In July 2006, he was inducted into the International Circus Hall of Fame.[3]

Clair George has testified in court that he worked as a consultant in the early 1990s for Kenneth Feld and the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus where he was involved in the surveillance of Jan Pottker (a journalist who was writing about the Feld family) and of various animal rights groups such as PETA.[4]

As of February 2007, Kenneth Feld will be producing the new ice show, High School Musical On Ice, based on the hit Emmy Award-winning Disney Channel Original Movie, High School Musical.[5]

Walt Disney's World on ice began in 1981 (Renamed Disney on ice in 1998), followed by The Wizard of Oz on ice (1995 - 1999) & Grease on ice (1998 - 1999).
