My last day at Amazon & the Amazon Certified Refurbished program

Share this

Today is my last day! After more than 2,5 years at Amazon: launching the largest Electronic Sellers in Germany as well as overseeing the Certified Refurbished launch in Germany and program in general, I decided to commit myself to a new adventure.

I am really grateful for the possibility to work in such a great company, with so many smart and ambitious people. I had the opportunity to learn from and work with the best, to be challenged on my ideas and suggestions as well as to get the management´s trust of driving projects myself.

The last weeks, when it got announced that I will leave the company end of June I was often asked “why do you leave such an amazing company like Amazon?”, “are you completely crazy?“, „you will regret this decision” and many more questions or comments like these.

You can be ensured that I was asking myself the same questions hundreds of times before I resigned. I 100% agree that staying would be the more secure and easy choice! I had a regular income, was successful in my role and highly accepted in the company…so why leaving?!

The reason for my decision to leave Amazon can probably be found in my personality. I want to change things, I want to drive my idea forward and see the outcome…if my approach fails, just let me try another way to reach the goal! And exactly this is a problem in a company like Amazon! I don´t want to say Amazon is not innovative or driving ideas…no seriously Amazon for sure is one of the most innovative and driven cooperation in the world, don´t get me wrong, BUT it is still a cooperation! This means even if you have the best and coolest idea in the world on a topic, you normally cannot just do it…you must get the approval from the top. For some important decisions, this is even higher than the national (DE) or international (EU) level, it runs through the global decision chain (Seattle, US). After my experience that some of my ideas, suggestions and necessary improvements were not handled in a short timeframe, but instead only came on the “Roadmap 2019/20/21…”, I decided that I need a change….

And exactly this is where I am right now. At a new turning point. A new opportunity to maybe change something important. To make my personal contribution for a better world. I am really looking forward to what is in front of me, new opportunities, new ideas, new challenges! And I will invest all the capacity I have for driving my goal in the best possible way….

Stay tuned what it will be 🙂
Over and out! Hasta la vista!
