Mitch Lowe is a top business and entertainment speaker, former president of RedBox, and founding executive at Netflix, Inc., serving as Netflix’s Entertainment Domain Expert and Vice President of Business Development & Strategic Alliances from 1998 to 2003. He was also the CEO of MoviePass, a subscription service that charged members a monthly fee for movie tickets at cinemas.
Lowe began opening video rental stores in the mid-1980s, building a chain of 10 locations in Northern California. While running his stores, he was a board member and president of the national trade association representing the burgeoning video entertainment retail industry.
Early on, Lowe recognized that physical delivery of content was only an interim stage and needed to evolve with technology. Therefore, in the early 1990s, along with one of the cofounders of Autodesk, he founded a startup aimed at providing internet store services and marketing to video stores around the US.
In the late 1990s, Lowe met Marc Randolph and Reed Hastings who wanted to start a DVD Mail Order business and were looking for expertise in the rental industry. Mitch joined what became Netflix in 1998 and led Business Development and Strategic Alliances for its first five years. Lowe was a member of the small Executive Leadership team that devised the “All You Can Eat” subscription service and played a key role in building the culture that has led to the primary way we now consume entertainment.
A year after Netflix went public, Lowe was recruited by McDonald’s to help them with a project to introduce automated DVD rental kiosks at their restaurants. Lowe led Redbox for eight years, first as COO and later as president, growing the company to over $1.5B in revenue and 35k kiosks across the US.
Lowe has made many personal investments in start-ups, primarily in the entertainment, blockchain, and social spaces. He is passionate about the success and business fulfillment of people in large businesses as well as first-time entrepreneurs. Lowe sits on the board of Cantaloupe Systems, Booxby, and Vidbox.
