Amazon MD Brian McBride steps down

Amazon UK managing director Brian McBride has stepped down from his role for health reasons.

McBride, who joined Amazon UK in January 2006, said: “It has been a privilege to be at Amazon for the past five years and it is time for me to focus on my medical condition.  I will soon begin treatment for prostate cancer and my doctor is optimistic about a positive outcome.  I will truly miss the entire UK team but this is the right time to hand over the reins.”

Vice president for media products Christopher North will take over the reins of the etailer’s UK operations.
