A 20-year Hollywood veteran, Noon joined Netflix from Disney in 2012, just as the streamer was making its foray into original programming.

Veteran Netflix dealmaker Bryan Noon is leaving the streamer after a shift in his team's structure.

Noon, a vp of original series, has been with Netflix for eight years, most recently overseeing a business affairs team of more than 35 who were key in inking the streamer's big overall deals with talent like Shonda Rhimes and Ryan Murphy. Netflix — which regularly reorganizes its internal divisions — recently combined the series business affairs and legal teams, resulting in changes to Noon's role. As a result, he decided to depart. He is staying on through Oct. 16 to help with the transition.

"Bryan was a key member of our original series initiative as it formed," Netflix co-CEO and content chief  Ted Sarandos said in a statement. "He brought a great deal of passion, innovation and energy to the work. We are grateful for his contributions and we wish him continued success in the future."

A 20-year Hollywood veteran, Noon joined Netflix from Disney in 2012, just as the streamer was making its foray into original programming. A graduate of UCLA's Anderson School of Management, he served as an accountant at Warner Bros. Entertainment and Universal Pictures early in his career.
