Amazon Prime Worldwide Head Greg Greeley Leaves Amazon


SEATTLE, WA
Tuesday, March 6th, 2018

Vice President of Amazon Prime Worldwide Greg Greeley has announced plans to leave the company after an 18 year tenure with the company.

Greg Greeley, Vice President, Amazon Prime Worldwide “It’s hard to believe it has been over 18 years since I joined Amazon. It has been an amazing and inspirational experience, but the time has come for me take on a different challenge,” said Greeley in a post shared on the executive’s Linkedin. “It was Jeff Bezos’ heartfelt 1997 Letter to Shareholders that ultimately drew me to Amazon, and I have not regretted that decision for even a nanosecond. That letter described a unique approach for a public company, and the vision it contained was even more powerful than I fully understood at the time. With a relentless focus on customers and eight clearly defined long-term principles, it has been the foundation for a phenomenal business, and I truly believe, even now, it is still Day 1.”

Throughout his time with Amazon, Greeley held a number of executive positions including Vice President – European Consumer Business for Amazon EU and Vice President – International Expansions for Amazon. Greeley also simultaneously served on the boards of various companies and organizations, including USC Viterbi School of Engineering and LOVEFiLM.

“Those who have read that letter know it speaks of employees joining with the desire to build something that matters to customers, something we can tell our grandchildren about,” Greeley continued. “That has certainly been the case for me, and is still the case for those joining today. Amazon is a company where you really can help invent the future, a company where builders can build, a company where you have a unique opportunity to work hard, have fun, and make history.”

Greeley ended his statement, noting his thankfulness to Amazon’s team members. The departing executive did not stipulate what the “different challenge” to which he was moving on would be.

News of Greeley’s departure follows less than a month after Amazon announced planes to consolidate its Amazon Prime Now and AmazonFresh divisions (reported by our sister publication here) and news that Amazon Prime Now’s two hour delivery services would be available at a growing number of Whole Foods locations.

Deli Market News will continue to report as Amazon restructures to better tackle brick and mortar and fresh food spaces.
