CEO: Hulu

Hulu has been one of the most intriguing developments in the television world since it was launched in 2007, and Jason Kilar was with the company every step of the way until spring of this year.

In its first half-decade of existence, Hulu has become the online destination for viewing recent TV content. Depending on how things shake out, Hulu may be equally well remembered for kicking off the trend of companies that deliver media by creating content in-house; they launched their first in-house web series in 2011, beating both Amazon and Netflix. Whatever ultimately becomes of Hulu after Kilar's departure, the first Hulu CEO will be remembered for overseeing the transition of broadcast television into the Internet age.
