Knotel co-founder leaves company, describes investor Newmark as ‘a stalking horse’

Earlier this year, we covered the demise of flexible workspace operator Knotel.

It was a hard fall for a company that just one year prior had been valued at $1.6 billion. It was hard to pinpoint exactly the beginning of the end for Knotel, which had raised about $560 million in...

Why Adam Selipsky was the logical choice to run AWS

When AWS CEO Andy Jassy announced in an email to employees yesterday that Tableau CEO Adam Selipsky was returning to run AWS, it was probably not the choice most considered. But to the industry watchers we spoke to over the last couple of days, it was a move that made absolute sense once you thought about it. Gartner analyst Ed Anderson says that the cultural fit was probably too good for Jassy to pass up. Selipsky spent 11 years helping build the division. It was someone he knew well and had wo...

Tableau CEO Adam Selipsky is returning to AWS to replace Andy Jassy as CEO

When Amazon announced last month that Jeff Bezos was moving into the executive chairman role, and AWS CEO Andy Jassy would be taking over the entire Amazon operation, speculation began about who would replace Jassy.
