Jay Carney

SVP of worldwide corporate affairs

Earlier this year, the former White House press secretary took on the newly created role of SVP of worldwide corporate at e-commerce powerhouse Amazon as it takes on many lobbying issues, among them: sales taxes, transportation and intellectual property. Carney splits his time between Amazon's Seattle HQ and its Washington, D.C. office. 

Carney was White House press secretary for three years before stepping down in June 2014. Before that he was director of communications for vice president Joe Biden. Carney previously served as Washington bureau chief for Time magazine, a post he held from September 2005 until December 2008, after joining the magazine in 1989.
