A key advisor to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has been appointed to a new position in the company — one that reflects its continued focus on delivery infrastructure.
Maria Renz, who served as technical advisor to Bezos for the past two years, has been named to the new role of VP of delivery experience, reported Recode.
Renz was the first woman to serve in this advisor role. Amazon’s top executive team features just one woman — principal accounting officer Shelley Reynolds.
The promotion, featured on Renz’s LinkedIn bio, doesn’t describe her new responsibilities. But the Recode report suggests that she will oversee Amazon’s countless efforts to handle customer deliveries internally, rather than relying on UPS and the Postal Service.
