Amazon Entertainment VP Public Relations and Publicity Craig Berman has left the company, according to a report on Deadline.
Berman had been with Amazon since 2004, with duties that included advising CEO Jeff Bezos on corporate/crisis communications, communications duties for the company’s fulfillment network and consumer PR for Amazon’s retail business. He worked on the launches of the Kindle, Fire Tablets, Fire TV and the voice-activated Echo/Alexa systems.
At Amazon Entertainment, he dealt with two controversies that centered on sexual harassment charges: the removal of “Transparent” star Jeffrey Tambor and the exit of Roy Price from the top spot at Amazon Studios.
Before coming to Amazon, Berman was a senior vice president at MWW Group.
“I have had an amazing 14-year run at Amazon, but I am ready for something new,” he told Deadline.
No replacement for Berman has been named.
