The largest U.S. retailer is losing control of a lease trader who has a stake in a major contract, sources told The Wall St. Journal.
The company’s lease trader, Paul Pichon, lost his position on a $2.2 billion contract to deliver a $10 million drone to Amazon last year.
Amazon declined to comment on whether Pichons position was affected by the deal, but Amazon said it has a zero-tolerance policy for employees involved in any kind of misconduct.
The move was announced after Pichs name was linked to an online lawsuit filed by a California resident who claimed Amazon stole his name and personal information from the company and used it to sell his home.
The lawsuit also alleged that Amazon used his personal information to target him for a job and that Amazon did not pay him.
Amazon declined to respond to The Wall Journal’s questions about the case.
