Co-founder and CEO of Netflix
Who can remember the uproar after Netflix announced they were changing their membership and pricing platform for DVD and streaming customers? Though it only seems like yesterday, most of us have moved on as CEO Reed Hastings did a good job of turning our attention to the promise of the home entertainment company. Earning over a dozen Emmy nominations this year, Netflix held its own against major cable companies like HBO with their original series, House of Cards and relaunch of the one-time FOX hit, Arrested Development. With over 36 million subscribers and accounting for one-third of all internet traffic in the U.S., the future of Netflix looks extremely promising.
