North, who has been with the etailer since 2006, is set to take the role of president and chief executive at Shutterfly on May 31. He will also join the board of the firm.

Shutterfly will pay him an annual salary of $700,000 (£480,000) for the first two years and North will also receive a “transition bonus” of $1.5m (£1m) and shares in the company.

A spokesman for Amazon said: “We’d like to thank Christopher for his many contributions and wish him the best with his new venture.”
