Former FedEx exec heads to Amazon

Associate Editor, Memphis Business Journal
After an abrupt resignation in 2018, a former FedEx exec has a new home with Amazon.
Sean Healy, who spent 32 years with Memphis-based FedEx Corp., most recently as the regional chief operating officer for FedEx Express Europe, resigned in October 2018. The Memphis Business Journal recently learned he is now a director with Amazon.

According to Healy’s LinkedIn account, he started with Amazon in February of this year. Amazon confirmed Healy’s LinkedIn profile was accurate and that he was now an employee of the company, but they did not provide additional job details.  
Healy started his career at FedEx in 1986 as a package handler and worked his way up to the executive level.
He held his FedEx Express position in Europe — which relocated him from Memphis to Amsterdam — from July 2018 to October 2018. At the time of that promotion, FedEx Express Europe president and TNT CEO Bert Nappiersaid, “His additional experience leading teams through change means he is an excellent addition to the FedEx Express Europe leadership team at an exciting time for the company.”
Prior to that, Healy was the senior vice president of transportation, planning, and strategy for FedEx Freight. In that role, he led the design, development, and implementation of technology solutions and processes at FedEx Freight and managed its road network. Following his departure, FedEx said Healy had “resigned for personal reasons.”
Healy is also a former member of the board of commissioners for the Memphis Area Transit Authority (MATA).

Get amazon unionized so all employees have a worthwhile job

I see the teamsters are backing stop and shop workers which is a good thing, problem is their demands on such a small organization will probably just close the company who is competing against amazon and Walmart and target with many more stores and employees without union representation and not paying as good of wages no health Benefits no pension no anything.
Walgreens is another big player that don’t have to pay employees what they’re worth and sell everything under the sun.
We need fair unions for all not just a couple so everyone is on the same level .
Unions are needed when the companies don’t care and greed becomes their engine
