It’s been a quiet few weeks on the personnel news front due to the holiday season, but activity has started ramping up again. Last week Netflix appointed Spencer Neumann as new CFO who joins the company from Activision Blizzard. Activision said in a securities filing that they intended to fire Neumann for “unspecified reasons” which turned out to be that he had accepted a new job at Netflix. Activision Blizzard was quick to appoint a replacement naming former CFO Dennis Durkin as their new CFO. You can read more here.
