Reed Hastings – the man responsible for changing the media landscape forever is stepping as co-chief executive of Netflix

The 62-year-old Hastings co-founded the company in 1997.

Back then, Netflix delivered its subscribers movies on DVDs sent in the mail.

But he’s not walking away entirely – Hastings will move into the role of chairman.

As for his successor – Greg Peters, the company’s chief product and chief operating officer, will join Ted Sarandos as a co-chief executive.

Sarandos became co-CEO back in July 2020.

In a statement, Hastings says the new leadership duo have already earned their stripes – steering the company through Covid and upheavals in the industry as he began to step back over the last two and a half years.
