(Reuters) – E-commerce giant Amazon.com Inc’s (AMZN.O) long-serving executive Steve Kessel will leave the company after 20 years, a company spokesperson told Reuters on Friday.

Kessel, a senior vice president who has worked on Amazon’s “Kindle” and brick-and-mortar store “Amazon Go”, said he would be focusing on community service and not-for-profit work.

Beginning January, Dave Clark who is responsible for the company’s global supply chain and logistics operation will assume Kessel’s roles.
