Netflix has appointed Elizabeth Stone as Chief Technology Officer as part of reshuffle of several of senior executives in its advertising, technology and product divisions.
Stone has led the data and insights team for the streamer since 2020.
Meanwhile, the head of Netflix’s Consumer Product Innovation team, Eunice Kim, becomes Chief Product Officer.
Both report to Netflix co-CEO Greg Peters. The executive changes come nine months after veteran tech executive Peters was promoted to co-CEO alongside Ted Sarandos.
“Elizabeth and Eunice have strong track records at Netflix and more broadly within the technology industry,” said Peters. “Together they will be leading a hugely important part of our service so I’m excited to see all the ways in which they can improve the Netflix experience – making it even easier for people to find the right movie, series, or game at the right moment.”
“Technology has been critical to Netflix’s success over the last 25 years, enabling us to deliver an ever-improving member experience. It’s a huge privilege to work with such amazing teams and I am inspired by the opportunities to innovate into the future for the benefit of our members and our business,” added Stone.
Before Netflix, Stone led teams at Nuna and Lyft. She has also worked in finance, both as a trader at Merrill Lynch and as an economist at Analysis Group.
Kim joined Netflix in 2021 as head of the Consumer Product Innovation team. She previously spent 10 years in product leadership roles at Google Play and YouTube.
“Our product teams have been instrumental in helping Netflix reinvent itself — moving from DVDs to streaming, licensed to original programming and U.S.-only to a global service. I’m incredibly excited to lead them into our next chapter as we seek to improve discovery and enable an even broader world of entertainment,” Kim told trade paper Variety.
Elsewhere, VP of Studio Operations Amy Reinhard becomes President of Advertising, taking over from Jeremi Gorman.
