Netflix CEO Hastings not on Facebook's re-election list at 2019 AGM

Sunday 14 April 2019 | 10:52 CET | News
Facebook will not re-elect Netflix CEO Reed Hastings at the company's 2019 annual stockholders meetings, writes CNBC.com citing a Facebook statement. Hastings served on FB's board since 2011. At the same time, PayPal SVP of core markets, Peggy Alford, will be nominated instead of Erskine Bowles, the president emeritus of the University of North Carolina. Hastings' departure comes about three years after he got into a dispute with fellow board member Peter Thiel over their political inclinations.
