It is the latest raft of personnel changes at the company, coming days after Jeremi Gordon, who spearheaded its move into advertising, left, to be replaced by Amy Reinhard, who is now president of advertising.

Gagan joined Netflix in 2008 and oversees all of its content deals, including content production, acquisition, and distribution, as well as overseeing its labor relations, music business and legal affairs, and intellectual property groups. Gagan said, “It’s been a true privilege to be part of Netflix for the past 16 years and to help it grow. I look forward to watching what the company & the colleagues I so admire and respect do next.”

Paquette joined in 2014, having previously been a consultant at eOne and having worked for many years at CSI producer Alliance Atlantis.

Mizrahi oversees Netflix’s studio operations business affairs and legal team including VFX, localization, post production, IP, marketing and consumer products. He has been with Netflix since 2012.

Zager, who has been with Netflix since 2014, has been a director of Netflix-purchased companies such as The Roald Dahl Company and VFX company Scanline.

A Netflix spokesperson told Deadline, “This update to the structure of our business affairs and legal team was designed to help meet the future business needs of Netflix.  It was thoughtfully planned, incorporating suggestions from senior leaders, who knew that it could result in the loss of their roles”. 

David Hyman, Netflix Chief Legal Officer added, “Parting ways with these valued leaders — all of whom have been at the company for many years — is very hard. I have so much respect for them as people, as leaders, and as lawyers and want to thank them for all they’ve done for Netflix.”
