Jason Del Rey has been a business journalist for 15 years and has covered Amazon, Walmart, and the e-commerce industry for the last decade. He was a senior correspondent at Vox.

Less than a week after Amazon suspended its Studios chief Roy Price following sexual harassment claims, the executive has resigned from the company, a spokesman confirmed.

The departure comes after TV producer Isa Hackett went public last week with details about harassment allegations against Price in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

Hackett, an executive producer of the Amazon series “The Man in the High Castle,” had previously declined to publicize specifics of the incident, but later said she felt compelled to come forward after a host of women went public with harassment and rape allegations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

Since Price’s suspension last week, it appeared to be a foregone conclusion that he would not return to Amazon. The resignation also comes shortly after The Wall Street Journal published a critical piece about Price’s tenure at Amazon.

CNN’s Brian Stelter first reported news of Price’s resignation on Tuesday. Amazon exec Albert Cheng will continue to fill in for Price on an interim basis.
