Sheryl Sandberg said she isn’t interested in the CEO post at Walt Disney Co., throwing cold water on speculation that the Facebook Inc. executive is a frontrunner for the position.

Sandberg, Facebook’s chief operating officer, said she’s happy in her current position. “I don’t want another job,” she said at the Recode conference in Rancho Palos Verdes, California, responding to a question about the Disney job.
