Amazon confirmed on Monday that Wei Gao, Amazon’s vice president of grocery tech, product, and supply chain, is leaving the company.
Gao held a number of roles throughout her 16-year tenure at Amazon and served as Jeff Bezos’ “shadow” adviser for a period of time.
Her last day at Amazon is Sept. 17, 2021, the company confirmed. An Amazon spokesperson didn’t say where Gao is going.
Gao’s departure comes as Amazon has faced criticism for its largely white, male upper ranks.
