News>Executive Changes Amazon Prime loses top executive Service had recently expanded with Whole Foods delivery Mark Hamstra 1 | Mar 07 2018

Greg Greeley, VP of Amazon Prime and delivery experience, and a Prime founder, has departed the company to head the Homes business at home-rental platform AirBNB, following nearly two decades at the ecommerce giant.

"Greg will join our executive team and report directly to me", Chesky, the cofounder and CEO of Airbnb, said in a blog post Tuesday.

"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", Greeley wrote in a LinkedIn post late Monday announcing his departure.

Looking back at his time at Amazon which Greg describes as "an wonderful and inspirational experience", he references Amazon's eight clearly defined long-term principles and said he truly believes that, even now, it is still Day 1 for Amazon. He was VP of global and category expansion, where he oversaw the launch of Amazon's consumer businesses in India and Brazil. Greeley also simultaneously served on the boards of various companies and organizations, including USC Viterbi School of Engineering and LOVEFiLM.

Continued Greeley: "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. 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". The departing executive did not stipulate what the "different challenge" to which he was moving on would be.
