Monday is the last day for tax sale & Blake Krikorian has left the ship
Mr. Blake Krikorian is a well-known Silicon Valley entrepreneur so when he leaves the Amazon Board you got to assume something is wrong for this tech savvy exec to leave.
He was a video and media distribution expert in his company, Sling Media, and was such for AMZN.
EchoStar Communications a competitor of Amazon, picked up Mr. Krikorian and unless there is a nondisclosure agreement signed ( even if there is ) the variety of projects and the various work in progress will become knowledge to EchoStar. Amazon surly could have used Krikorian as it tries to enter the media distribution space more aggressively.
He worked on the Kindle tablet for example and the rumored Amazon interactive television device, and AMZN’S new I-phone clone start up, in which he being a mechanical engineer most assuredly had a hand in. SOMETHING WENT WRONG.
Or maybe he just didn’t get along with the other eight-person board?
