Early this month, Panos revealed that he is leaving Microsoft after nearly 19 years. “After 19 incredible years at Microsoft, I’ve decided to turn the page and write the next chapter. I’m forever grateful for my time at Microsoft and the amazing people I had the honor to make products with,” said Panay.

The rumors were correct. Panos Panay is actually joining Amazon. Today, Amazon CEO Andy Jassy revealed that Panos Panay will be joining Amazon to lead its Devices & Services business (D&S), reporting to him and Panos will also be joining their senior leadership team.

“As a strong product builder and inventor who has deep experience in both hardware and integrated services, Panos will be a great addition to our D&S organization moving forward,” said Andy Jassy.

Panos will start his work at Amazon at the end of October, and Dave Limp, the current leader of D&S will work with him over the next couple of months to ensure a smooth transition.

“I’ve known Panos for years, and believe he will be a great addition to this organization moving forward. He is a passionate product leader and I can’t wait to see what all of you invent together. I’ll work diligently with him for the next two months to ensure a smooth transition through our fall launches and getting through our OP1 planning,” said Dave Limp.
