With Jassy as CEO and Bezos becoming executive chairman this year, there's been a scramble for leadership positions beneath them, as well as many departures.
Dave Clark became CEO of Amazon's worldwide consumer business this year, taking over from Jeff Wilke, who left the company. Clark oversees everything from Amazon's warehouse and shipping network to marketing and the Prime membership program.
In its turn, Adam Selipsky took over from Jassy as CEO of Amazon Web Services, the company's cloud-computing operation. Charlie Bell, a veteran cloud executive, has left, while James Hamilton, a distinguished engineer, was named to the powerful S-team.
Jeff Blackburn returned to the company in June to run Amazon's media and entertainment division, which includes Prime Video, Amazon Studios, Twitch , podcasts, Audible and games.
Amazon confirmed the additions and promotions to GeekWire. Bezos and Jassy made and announced the decisions jointly in an internal message on July 1, prior to the official CEO transition on July 5. Bezos remains the company’s executive chairman.
Several key executives have left the company in recent months in advance of the CEO transition.
