Jeff Bezos has brought two female Amazon execs into his inner executive circle bringing the total number of women there to three.

Recode reported Amazon's VP of fashion Christine Beauchamp and VP of advertising Colleen Aubrey have been promoted into Jeff Bezos' "S-Team" a select group of 22 Amazon execs that help him run the tech behemoth.

The S-Team is separate to Amazon's board.

The lone woman already on the S-Team is Beth Galetti, who has been Amazon's SVP of human resources since 2016.

Beauchamp has been at Amazon since 2017, and previously worked for big fashion brands Ralph Lauren and Ann Taylor. Aubrey joined the company as a sales manager in 2005 according to her LinkedIn profile , and took the job as VP of advertising in 2017.

Beauchamp and Aubrey were added to the S-Team along with four male executives :

  • Neil Lindsey, VP of prime and marketing.
  • Rohit Prasad, VP and head scientist in charge of Alexa.
  • Matt Garman, VP of Amazon Web Services compute services.
  • Peter Krawiec, VP of worldwide corporate development.

The tally means there are now three women in the exec squad to 19 men.

Amazon has been accused of having pale, male, and stale management in the past. Bezos addressed the lack of diversity in a 2017 all-hands meeting , citing a low rate of executive turnover as part of the reason the S-Team remained predominantly white and male. "I would expect any transition there to happen very incrementally over a long period of time," Bezos said.

In 2018 the company sparked outrage amongst its employees when the board opposed a shareholder proposal which would force it to consider women and minorities when selecting new board members. A week later Amazon implemented the policy , and in February this year added two women of color to its board: Roz Gates Brewer and Indra Nooyi .
