REED HASTINGS STAYING AHEAD OF THE CURVE

CEO of Netflix Reed Hastings cofounded Netflix in 1995 and now the company has over 183 million global members. Originally a DVD subscription, the company expanded into streaming content in 2007.

At the beginning of 2021, the company saw their growth slow down so Hastings is finding other ways for revenue.
