In his new role, Merriex will oversee global campaigns across Prime Video’s own brand, as well as its licensed content and originals, Variety reports. He will start on Aug. 9 and report to Ukonwa Ojo, the CMO for both Prime Video and Amazon Studios -- the division dedicated to original programming, including its hotly-anticipated Lord Of The Rings prequel series.
Prior to joining Amazon, Merriex served as global head of creative for Facebook Messenger -- and before that led creative for other Facebook products including Watch, Gaming, Live, and now-defunct short-form video hub Lasso. Before that, he served as group creative director at ad agency Walton Isaacson.
