How Amazon is transforming Whole Foods Market

By Gina Acosta - 06/15/2018

A year after Amazon acquired Whole Foods Market, numerous executives from Amazon have been given key roles in the Whole Foods operation.

According to an organization chart viewed by CNBC, John Mackey is still in charge, but is working alongside two Amazon executives, Rosanna Godden and Heather Dystrup-Chiang, to ensure a smooth transition.

Mackey reports to Amazon executive Steve Kessel, who oversees all of the online retailer's brick-and-mortar efforts, including Amazon Go.
