Finet worked at Amazon from 2006 to early 2015, and Bezos accused him of sending a message on behalf of the National Enquiry to seek a deal with a nude threat.
According to Philip's LinkedIn information, media reports, and interviews with his former colleagues, a curly-haired Philippe is socially friendly and travels around the world, a bit like Amazon's envoy. His job is to build relationships with the publishing world and help Amazon launch e-book reader technology overseas. According to a former colleague of Finet, in his spare time, Bezos and Finet also had social interactions.
On Thursday, Bezos said in a blog post that the National Enquiry newspaper threatened to publish his nude photos unless he no longer asked investigators to investigate the source and motivation of the National Interrogation to publish his extramarital affairs reports. The two emails contained in Bezos Bowen seem to have been written by Finn. Finn has not commented.
American Media said in a statement that "believe that the company's reports are legal" will investigate Bezos's allegations internally.
Between the publishing world and the news media, Finn has completed a career switch. In the case of Philippine's LinkedIn, he joined the Amazon Legal Department in January 2006 to manage the media and copyright law departments. Subsequently, he became the spokesperson of Amazon in the publishing industry, and managed the relationship between writers and publishers, letting them abandon their suspicions against Amazon.
Fine's LinkedIn home page shows that he has attended conferences and events around the world, helping Amazon's e-book reader Kindle to be launched in China and India.
He is also the first executive to be responsible for the Amazon awards program. So far, Amazon has reportedly awarded $10 million to writers and literary groups. Last year, he told the Seattle Times that in the early stages of the project, "they actually let me run the business."
Positive industry evaluation
Since leaving Amazon, he has served as a consultant and full-time position, and many of the companies that work are both technology and publishing companies.
"For outsiders of the publishing industry like me, he is very enthusiastic and very active, eager to help me complete my mission and let children read more literary works," Melzer said.
Recently, Finet was the publisher of the startup Open Road Integrated Media, working with writers and publishers to play a role similar to his work at Amazon.
According to a former colleague, Finet has unexpectedly left the job just after working for more than a year at Open Road. One of the reasons is that American Media gives higher pay.
"Others are very good, they are warm-hearted and not stupid," said a former Finn colleagues. "What shocks me is that he actually puts himself in this position." (Author / Yu Yu)
