Amazon Web Services’ PR manager Peter Witts departs

Peter Witts, the PR manager for Amazon Web Services in Australia and New Zealand, has departed the company.

Witts joined Amazon as manager of public relations for its web services in 2015, from his previous role as Sydney Water’s media and external communications manager.

Witts was with Amazon Web Services for nearly four years

Prior to his stint at Sydney Water, Witts was the director of media strategies at technology PR firm, Hotwire.

Since departing Amazon Web Services, Witts has been consulting with AwesomeTech.

Witts’ departure comes six months after Andrew Howie exited Westpac to become Amazon’s head of brand.

Meanwhile in May last year, Amazon appointed TBWA to its creative account.

In the lead up to its launch in Australia, Amazon hired Uber’s head of communications, Katie Curran, to take on the role of head of communications at Amazon Australia.

Witts has been approached for comment.
