General Manager

Georgia started her Pathways journey in 2016 as an Area Manager in Peterbrough, UK. Since then she has been promoted to an Operations Manager, a Senior Operations Manager, a Site Leader and she is now a General Manager with Amazon Emerging Market Expansion team.

When asked what she enjoys most about the Pathways program, she replies, “The best way to describe the program is ‘the world is your oyster,’ as you get support to explore new ideas and make significant changes for the business.” She continues, “I’ve worked in five different types of FCs, in different departments, and in different roles. In 2019, supported by both my team and stakeholders, I managed the rollout of a process change that led to a large amount of savings for the business.

Asked about participation in different groups at Amazon, she answers, “Apart from daily operations, I launched the UK’s Black Employee Network, I’ve been an active member in the Women in Ops affinity group, and the Pathways Circle Mentor program.” She adds, “I also became a Bar Raiser to support Amazon’s hiring process. The Pathways program stretches you, and if you take advantage of it and maximize it, the rewards are unending and it is truly fulfilling.

When asked about her biggest achievement at Amazon, she states, “In 2019, my manager nominated me for the UK Everywoman in Transport & Logistics award in the Above & Beyond category. This award celebrates a woman who has helped drive an organisation’s success.” She continues, “I was honoured to receive the nomination and was awestruck when I actually won the award.”

Describing her biggest challenge in her role, she says, “Shortly after being promoted to a Site Leader, I launched a brand new, Robotics-powered FC. It was a stretch assignment as I had to learn how to launch an FC while also learning how to be a Site Leader.” She continues, “Setting up a dream team and preparing for the launch, was exciting, enlightening, and challenging, and I was super proud of the team our FC was ranked top in the UK, just one-year post launch. Now I’m working with an amazing team looking to launch operations in new countries and whilst this is even more challenging, I’m fascinated about the new things I learn daily in the process”
