Zimbabwean Billionaire, Strive Masiyiwa, Appointed Board Member Of Netflix Inc.
Strive Masiyiwa; London-based Zimbabwean billionaire businessman and philanthropist has been appointed board member of Netflix Inc. as it looks to new markets for future growth, according to Bloomberg. Making the top three board members, two of whom are European Masiyiwa will bring a fresh set of connections and experience as the first African — and the third international media executive — to join Netflix’s board in recent years.
Netflix now has more than 190 million subscribers, and is looking to regions beyond the U.S. and Europe for its next batch of customers. Asia accounted for the most new subscribers last quarter.
For now, Africa is a small market for paid streaming video. In a continent of more than a billion people, Netflix has just a couple million customers, according to Digital TV Research. But the company has long argued that it would play the long game adding customers in Asia and Africa, home to the majority of the world’s people. Toward that end, Netflix has started offering cheaper, mobile-only plans and has commissioned a slate of original series and movies.
Strive Masiyiwa is the founder and executive chairman of the international technology group Econet Global. Earlier this year, he paid $10 million in cash and other assistance to more than 1,700 health-care workers, which helped land him on Bloomberg’s list of the 50 most important people in business during 2020.
He has gained international recognition for his business expertise and philanthropy, and is considered one of Africa’s most generous humanitarians. Masiyiwa has provided scholarships to over 250,000 young Africans over the past 20 years through his family foundation. He supports more than 40,000 orphans with educational initiatives and sponsors students at universities in America, The United Kingdom, and China. Over the last few years, Masiyiwa has devoted his time to mentoring the next generation of African entrepreneurs on Facebook.
“We are delighted to welcome Strive to the Netflix board,” Chairman and Co-Chief Executive Officer Reed Hastings said Wednesday in a statement. “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.”
