And he's the producer of Code Commerce, an event series featuring unscripted interviews with the most influential entrepreneurs and executives working at the intersection of technology and commerce.
Del Rey has been a business journalist since 2007, and has previously covered media and startups for Advertising Age and Inc. magazine.

And in 2019, the National Retail Federation named him as one of the "25 People Shaping Retail's Future."
He is a graduate of Georgetown University and the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.
Interviews with diversity managers and internal data obtained by Recode indicate that Black Amazon employees are promoted less frequently and are rated more harshly than non-Black peers.
