Greg Peters to become Netflix chief product officer in July

MUMBAI: Internet TV network Netflix has announced that Greg Peters will become chief product officer in July, assuming the role from Neil Hunt, who for the last 18 years has led the product team which designs, builds, and delivers the Netflix experience.

Peters most recently has led international development efforts from the Netflix office in Tokyo since 2015. In his nine years at Netflix, Peters has held positions overseeing product engineering and business development and in his role leading Netflix Japan, marketing and content licensing and creation.

“When I first met Greg nine years ago, I knew he was an especially gifted engineer and entrepreneur. I’m delighted to be leaving the Netflix product organisation in such great shape and in such good hands,” said Hunt.

“Neil has been an amazing leader who uniquely brings together analytical rigor, deep engineering chops, human warmth and a wry sense of humor. I’ve been lucky to have him as my mentor,” said Peters.

“Greg and Neil have collaborated through the years to make the Netflix experience all over the world absolutely incredible . “I look forward to having Greg take on this role and to celebrate with Neil our 100 millionth member,” said Netflix co-founder, CEO Reed Hastings.

Separately, Netflix also announced that chief talent officer Tawni Cranz, who joined the company in 2007, would leave the company and pursue other interests.

“Over the last decade, Tawni has played a formative role in developing our business culture as well as developing an amazing talent team. We deeply appreciate her contributions,” said Hastings.
