Winter 2020

Young Lee

Standout: Only the second Korean-American vice president at Amazon, a company with more than 750,000 employees. Leap of Faith: He pivoted professionally to the tech world, first in a start-up, then at leading consumer technology companies like Expedia and Amazon.com. Perk of the Job: A big Star Wars fan, he met Mark Hamill, aka Luke Skywalker, at a recent Amazon MARS conference, which brings together innovative thinkers in machine learning, automation, robotics, and space. Where He Can Be Found After Hours: “At a good restaurant, with my family and friends, eating and drinking good wine.” If You Could Add One More Hour to the Day: “I would spend it finishing the book I can’t seem to finish, or watching Watchmen, or hitting the tennis ball with my son.”
