Netflix gaming content lead Christopher Lee is off to Xbox

 

It’s not all one way on the growing Netflix games team. 

The streaming giant recently bid farewell to six-year Netflix veteran Christopher Lee, who has held roles including marketing director, head of game sourcing and most recently head of interactive games.

Lee revealed on LinkedIn that he’s now general manager of Xbox portfolio planning and partner marketing. It’s a return to Microsoft for Lee, having worked there previously as product manager and general manager on IP like Halo, Age of Empires and Forza. 

During his six years at Netflix, Lee was responsible for building and overseeing the portfolio of games from external studios, and led partnerships with Epic Games, Ubisoft and Garena. He also oversaw the development of original games based on Netflix IP.

Elsewhere at the streaming giant, former Nexon, Netmarble and Gamevil producer Hansol Junger has stepped into the role of games program manager, having previously served as project and program manager at Netflix during almost five years at the company.
