In this video, Motley Fool analyst Jim Mueller takes a look at Netflix's management, and CEO Reed Hastings in particular. Hastings has been key in the company's recent growth, but he's also made some bad decisions, including the Qwikster debacle, and he took criticism for last year's price increase. But Hastings is no stranger to tech, having been involved with both Microsoft and Facebook, and has the experience to move the company forward.

Jim also tells us about Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos, whose links to the entertainment industry help Netflix negotiate better deals both for the company and for subscribers.
