Cindy Holland

That free space you have on your DVR? You can blame Holland and her team for launching numerous popular and award-winning programs spanning drama, comedies, family shows, documentaries, stand-up specials and docuseries. These are the programs countless viewers spend their free time watching over traditional network fare. Netflix is in it for the long haul, which Holland knows all about. The veteran exec and avid cyclist has ridden the 545-mile AIDS/Lifecycle fundraising ride a total of 10 times in support of the LA LGBT Center. Speaking of high numbers, Netflix earned 112 Primetime Emmys this year. Not too shabby given that the company launched original content just five years ago.
