Netflix is reportedly set to announce the hiring of Spencer Neumann as its new CFO, replacing long-time chief executive David Wells, who is leaving the company, according to Reuters, which cited sources familiar with the situation.
Neumann, who has been CFO of Activision Blizzard for less than two years, was put on paid leave Dec. 31 by the Los Angeles-based video game publisher, according to a regulatory filing.
Prior to Activision, Neumann held management positions at Disney’s theme park and television units.
A Netflix spokesperson wasn’t immediately available for comment.
