The founder of Ring, Jamie Siminoff, has announced his departure, resulting in a significant change in leadership for the popular video doorbell company.
Ring was founded by Siminoff with the goal of enabling users to answer their door using their smartphones.
In 2018, Amazon acquired Ring for a whopping $1 billion. After five years of working with Amazon, Ring founder, Siminoff, has decided to move on to new endeavors. Liz Hamren has been appointed as the new CEO of Ring.
Since CEO Andy Jassy succeeded founder Jeff Bezos almost two years ago, at least 40 individuals at the vice president level or higher have departed from Amazon.
