Following the confirmation of Adam Selipsky’s resignation from his role as CEO of Amazon Web Services (AWS), Amazon has announced Matt Garman as the new chief, effective June 3.

Matt Garman, who has been with AWS since 2006 and overseeing Sales, Marketing, and Global Services since 2020, is set to take on the leadership position left vacant by Selipsky.

Despite the not-so-surprising move, Selipsky’s return to Amazon in 2021 was with a clear mission to prepare the business for a new era of leadership. With a background as the former CEO of Tableau and an 11-year tenure at AWS, Selipsky made significant contributions to the company’s success over the years.

In a statement, Andy Jassy praised Garman’s capabilities, highlighting his customer-centric approach, strong leadership in product development, problem-solving skills, and dedication to high standards and action bias. Jassy also commended Selipsky for his leadership during his time at AWS, acknowledging his successful navigation through challenges, including those posed by the pandemic.

During Selipsky’s tenure, AWS generated $25 billion in revenue in the latest quarter, reflecting a notable 17% year-on-year growth. Looking forward, Garman’s appointment may usher in some organizational changes for AWS, as hinted in the memo, with details to be shared with employees in the coming weeks.
