Dave Clark, Flexport CEO and former Amazon exec, has resigned because of a change in route the corporate is taking.

Clark left Amazon in June 2022, after 23 years with the corporate, to take the highest job at Flexport. Now, only a yr later, Clark is leaving. The exec took to X to explain the explanation why, saying it was the results of a change of route Flexport and founder Ryan Peterson are taking.

Founders have the appropriate to alter their thoughts. I got here to Flexport to do huge issues and that’s the place I imagine we have been headed. Right this moment, Ryan and I mentioned his want to to return to specializing in progress within the core freight enterprise. In gentle of that, I really feel that he’s greatest suited to guide the corporate in that route. As such, I can be resigning from my place at Flexport.

Clark says he stays a shareholder within the firm and wished one of the best for it.
