After spending over a decade at Amazon, Gregg Zehr and Tom Taylor, two high-profile executives, who helped oversee the company’s hardware efforts, have left the company.

Zehr has retired from his position as president of Lab126, Amazon’s hardware research and development group. During his time with the eCommerce giant, Zehr is credited with inventing the Kindle e-reader.

Meanwhile, Taylor, a member of CEO Andy Jassy’s elite S-Team, will be retiring from his role as senior vice president of Amazon Alexa.

“We have strong succession plans for all businesses, and both these positions were backfilled with strong internal leaders some time ago,” said an Amazon spokesperson in a statement.

The departure of both Zehr and Taylor follows a slew of other executives who have recently left the company, including Amazon’s workplace health and safety chief, Heather MacDougall, who departed in September 2022, and Jay Carney, the company’s public policy chief, who left in July 2022, to join Airbnb.

Shortly after, Dave Clark, a 23-year Amazon veteran, resigned as the company’s retail chief. And in the same month, Dave Bozeman, an operations executive, and Alicia Boler-Davis, senior vice president of global customer fulfillment, also left their roles.
