Amazon announced in a regulatory filing on Friday that its global consumer business CEO, Andy Middot; Andy Jassy's top lieutenants, Dave & Middot; Dave Clark will step down on July 1 after 23 years at Amazon.
Amazon did not announce a replacement for Clark. In a blog post announcing his departure, Mr Jassy said Amazon was finalising a succession plan for Mr Clarke and would announce an update "in the coming weeks". "The past few years have been some of the most challenging and unpredictable in the history of Amazon's consumer business, and I am especially grateful to Dave for his leadership during these times." Jahi said.
Clark tweeted that he felt it was the right time to leave Amazon. "As much as I've loved this journey, it's time for me to say goodbye and start a new one," he said in an email to employees. "I've been discussing my plans to leave Amazon with my family and others close to me for some time, but I want to make sure the team is ready for success. I believe the time is now."
As CEO of Amazon's global consumer business, Clark oversees a number of key divisions, including online stores, brick-and-mortar stores, third-party seller marketplaces and Amazon Prime subscriptions. Those businesses generated more than 75% of Amazon's revenue in the first quarter of this year. (Author/Xiao Yu)
