•  Amazon announced last week that on July 1, Doug Herrington will replace Dave Clark as head of the company's retail business.

The Information reports that CEO Andy Jassy announced the move comes along with a "name change for the organization, formerly known as Amazon’s worldwide consumer business, which is now called the worldwide Amazon stores business."

At the same time, CNBC writes, "Amazon is losing two top executives who lead warehouses and transportation.

"Alicia Boler-Davis, senior vice president of global customer fulfillment and a member of the company’s leadership team, and David Bozeman, VP of Amazon Transportation Services, are departing the company, according to people familiar with the matter. Both were among the company’s few top Black executives. Amazon has made progress on diversity in its executive ranks in recent years, but still only 5.5% of its senior leaders were Black as of the end of 2021, according to company data."
