Reed Hastings steps down as Netflix's co-CEO
Starting Friday, Greg Peters will step up from Chief Operating Officer to become Ted Sarandos's co-CEO, Hastings said in a blogpost.
The company promoted Sarandos to co-CEO alongside Hastings in July 2020 and Peters to the Chief Operating Officer.
"I'm so proud of our first 25 years, and so excited about our next quarter of a century," Hastings said.
"Ted, Greg and I have been working closely together in different capacities for 15 years," he added.
Moreover, he announced that the company has made Bela Bajaria Chief Content Officer and Scott Stuber chairman of Netflix Film.
According to Hastings, both the current co-CEOs "can always be relied upon to put Netflix's interests first".
"For myself, I'll be helping Greg and Ted, and, like any good Chairman, be a bridge from the board to our co-CEOs. I'll also be spending more time on philanthropy, and remain very focused on Netflix stock doing well," Hastings said.
"We start 2023 with renewed momentum as a company and a clear path to reaccelerate our growth. I'm thrilled about Ted and Greg's leadership, and their ability to make the next 25 years even better than the first," he added.
