The current Tableau CEO Adam Selipsky is returning to his old place of work and will take over the chief position at AWS in the course of the year. […]
When looking for a new boss, they found what they were looking for at Amazon Web Services. The cloud computing division of the internet giant Amazon succeeded in poaching Adam Selipsky, a top manager from Salesforce. Selipsky has been heading the data visualization specialist Tableau since 2016, which Salesforce swallowed around two years ago.
According to an email from the current AWS CEO Andy Jassy to the workforce, which has now been published on the company blog, Selipsky will switch to the cloud provider in mid-May. He should definitely take over the helm in the third quarter. The designated AWS boss is returning to his old place of work. Because before Selipsky went to Tableau, he was Jassy’s right-hand man and was responsible for sales, marketing and customer service in a COO-like role. He first came to AWS in 2005.
AWS had to look around for a new CEO because Andy Jassy will take over the management of the group operations from Jeff Bezos. The change of the cloud boss to the top of Amazon will also take place in the third quarter of this year. It was announced at the beginning of February that Bezos will be handing over the management of the group after almost three decades. However, the founder will continue to play an important role at Amazon as Chairman of the Board of Directors after his resignation.
