Times are changing at Netflix. Co-founder/co-CEO Reed Hastings is shifting his role to Executive Chairman, clearing the way for Greg Peters to be elevated to co-CEO. The leadership shakeup has been discussed for quite some time, but it gives the streamer a new vision as it prioritizes cracking down on password sharing and moves forward with its ad-supported tier.
