How could anyone look at the state of Activision-Blizzard and say “I want a CEO who runs a company like that guy runs that company”?
Netflix is expected to announce in the next few days that it has poached media finance veteran Spencer Neumann from Activision Blizzard to be its chief financial officer, a source familiar with the matter told Reuters.
Neumann will start at Netflix in early 2019, the source said.
Earlier on Monday, Activision Blizzard said in a regulatory filing that it intended to fire Neumann for an unspecified reason. The video game company declined to comment on this report.
Neumann has served in a variety of finance roles including at Walt Disney. He replaces David Wells, who in August said he planned to step down after 14 years at the streaming media giant.
Based on the name, face and the way Activision-Blizzard is run, I assume Neumann is a Jew.
Funny how everything just falls in these people’s laps.
Activision-Blizzard isn’t just crap for the customer perspective, what with the Destiny 2 debacle and that insane Diablo “you all have phones, don’t you” psycho event at Blizzcon (where they implied they were giving people a new Diablo game then announced an Asian-style reskin of an Asian phone game, the biggest vidya industry debacle of the year this side of Fallout 76).
Their stock is tanking.
Also: the current CEO of Netflix isn’t Jewish and the outgoing CFO doesn’t appear to be Jewish.
Imagine being the Netflix board and saying “look, what we really need here is to make this company MORE Jewish.
