Zimbabwean very rich person Strive Masiyiwa, who established telecom giant Econet Global, has joined the board of directors at Netflix.
The move follow’s last week’s news that Susan Rice left her board present in planning on play a function in the Joe Biden organization.
“We are delighted to welcome Strive to the Netflix board,” Netflix co-founder and co-CEO Reed Hastings said in a press release. “His entrepreneurship and vision in building businesses across Africa and beyond will bring valuable insights and experience to our board as we work to improve and serve more members all around the world.”
Added Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos, “I’m thrilled to have Strive join our board as we expand more across Africa and the world.”
Notwithstanding filling in as chief executive of Econet, the London-based Masiyiwa fills in as a chief for Unilever, the National Geographic Society and the Asia Society. He is a worldwide warning load up part for Bank of America, the Council on Foreign Relations, Stanford University and the Prince of Wales Trust for Africa and is a long-term board individual from the United States Holocaust Museum’s Committee on Conscience.
A previous board individual from the Rockefeller Foundation, he is administrator emeritus of the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa and African Union Special Envoy to the landmass’ reaction to Covid-19.
“Netflix is at the forefront of bringing great entertainment from anywhere in the world to everyone in the world,” Masiyiwa said, “and I look forward to working with the board and all stakeholders to continue its traditions of innovation and growth.”
