Yet another former Amazon leader is joining GameStop's rapidly changing C-suite: Elliott Wilke will serve as the company's new chief growth officer starting in April.
Wilke, who oversaw a variety of initiatives at Amazon, joins former Amazon fulfillment director Jenna Owens (COO) and former Amazon Web Services engineering lead Matt Francis (CTO) on GameStop's executive team.
The executive shakeup at the ailing video game retailer comes amid a company-wide "transformation" overseen by board member and activist investor Ryan Cohen.
After taking a 12.9% stake last year through his investment firm RC Ventures, Cohen has made major changes at GameStop. First, he oversaw a string of C-suite departures and hirings. Then, he was appointed leader of a new committee overseeing a company-wide "transformation."
CEO George Sherman is the only remaining board member from before Cohen got involved with the company. Jim Bell, the company's CFO, is said to have been pushed to resign by the company's board. Soon after, CCO Frank Hamlin resigned.
