Salesforce executive, Adam Selipsky, will now replace the new Amazon CEO, Andy Jassy, in his role as chief of Amazon Web Services (AWS). Founder Jeff Bezos steps down later this year and Jassy will take up his role.
Selipsky had previously worked at AWS for over 10 years. He rose to the rank of vice president of sales and marketing, before running the startup Tableau, now a part of Salesforce. Jassy sent a Memo to Amazon employees announcing the news as reported by CNBC.

“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 memo.
Selipsky had become a Salesforce when it acquired Tableau in a $15.7 billion deal in 2019. Selipsky joined Salesforce’s executive leadership team as Tableau’s acting CEO.
“With a $51B revenue run rate that’s growing 28% YoY (these were the Q4 2020 numbers we last publicly shared), it’s easy to forget that AWS is still in the very early stages of what’s possible. We have a lot more to invent for customers, and we have a very strong leadership team and group of builders to go make it happen,” Jassy wrote in the memo. He was referencing the less than 5 percent of global IT spending that occurred in the cloud computing market.
