“I can’t believe I’m finally here.”
Gregg Spiridellis is talking about the six months of negotiating with Netflix over the acquisition of StoryBots, one of just a handful of deals in the gigantic company’s history. But he could have just as well have meant a lot of things by that statement.
He could have meant that he’s finally gotten his kids fed and to bed and can get on the call he promised me a few hours ago to talk about this deal.
He could have been referring to his two-year back-and-forth that recently led to the sale of the profitable but not-a-rocketship startup JibJab announced three months ago.
He could mean that for the first time in twenty years, he is not the boss.
