Adam Selipsky is an old face for AWS

Andy Jassy, the CEO of AWS, wrote in the mail, saying,
“Tableau transitioned through a fundamental business model change from perpetual licenses to subscription licensing, and the company was eventually acquired by Salesforce in 2019 in one of the largest software acquisitions in history. Following the acquisition, Adam remained the CEO of Tableau and was a member of Salesforce’s Executive Leadership Team. Adam brings strong judgment, customer obsession, team building, demand generation, and CEO experience to an already very strong AWS leadership team.”
“Adam will return to AWS on May 17. They will spend the subsequent several weeks transitioning together before making the change sometime in Q3,” he added.
