Ukonwa Ojo, who arrived at Amazon Studios and Prime Video close to two years ago as Chief Marketing Officer, is exiting.
In a memo to staff Tuesday about Ojo’s departure, Mike Hopkins, SVP Prime Video & Amazon Studios, wrote that he’s “reaching out to senior marketing team members in the coming days on how we best move forward.”
During her tenure at the studio, Ojo was a key part of the campaigns for their most watched movie, Coming 2 America; Aaron Sorkin’s three-time Oscar-nominated Being the Ricardos; and series The Boys, Wheel of Time and Barry Jenkins’ The Underground Railroad.
Prior to Amazon, Ojo was a CMO of MAC Cosmetics and Coty. At MAC, she focused on customer engagement and product innovation. At Coty, she led P&L, brand development strategy, advertising, innovation, social/digital, design, and media planning/buying. Prior to those posts, Ojo was an SVP at CoverGirl, and held brand and general management positions at Unilever, Reckitt Benckiser, General Mills Corp. and Meadwestvaco Corp. Deadline
