Adam Selipsky, CEO of Tableau Software since 2016, will succeed Andy Jassy as CEO of Amazon’s (Nasdaq: AMZN) cloud computing business.
Selipsky, who previously served as vice president of sales, marketing and support at Amazon Web Services from 2005 to 2016, will return to AWS on May 17 and spend a few weeks transitioning before taking over to lead the business sometime in the third quarter of 2021, Jassy said in an email to AWS employees.
“Adam brings strong judgment, customer obsession, team building, demand generation, and CEO experience to an already very strong AWS leadership team. And, having been in such a senior role at AWS for 11 years, he knows our culture and business well,” Jassy wrote in the email.
Selipsky joined Tableau in 2016 and has remained CEO of the software company following its acquisition by Salesforce (NYSE: CRM) in 2019. Prior to AWS, he served as a VP at RealNetworks. He also worked as a principal at Mercer Management Consulting.
In February, Amazon announced that Jassy will succeed Jeff Bezos as CEO of the Seattle-based technology company in Q3 2021. Bezos will transition to the role of executive chair at the company.
