David Limp Returns from Retirement to Lead Blue Origin
Former Amazon SVP David Limp Steps in as CEO for Blue Origin
In a surprising turn of events, David Limp, the former Senior Vice President of Devices and Services at Amazon, has thrown retirement plans out the window. Last week, Limp made headlines by announcing his departure from a role he had held for over a decade. However, within days, he was summoned by none other than Jeff Bezos himself to take the reins as the CEO of Blue Origin, a prominent player in the space exploration arena.
A Rescinded Retirement
David Limp’s retirement, which had been widely reported, has now been rescinded as he embarks on a new journey at Blue Origin. His initial announcement during Amazon’s 2023 Devices Event left many stunned, but the rapid about-face signals a remarkable shift in his career trajectory.
