Abe Diaz

As the principal technical product manager for Amazon’s disaster relief team. In partnership with our community partners, Abe focuses solely on bringing direct relief to those individuals who have been affected by natural disasters, providing product, logistics and ingenuity—with the goal of making their lives better than they were before. Under his leadership, Amazon has participated in over 60 disasters worldwide and donated over 13 million relief items to those in need.

Prior to disaster relief Abe worked on mobile technologies for several years including at Deloitte building an enterprise app marketplace of over 40 apps and iPad applications for the top leaders in the company including the CEO. He later joined NBC News as the mobile program manager before joining Amazon’s Prime Video. At Prime Video Abe worked on global expansions of payments, royalties and revenue automation. In 2017, Abe had the chance to participate as a technical volunteer in filling a plane with relief items for Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria. Being able to mobilize the technology, people and resources of Amazon for a cause like that was “the experience of a lifetime.” After that volunteer opportunity, he decided to join the Amazon disaster relief team permanently in 2019.

Abe earned his bachelor’s degree in computer engineering from the University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez and a master’s degree in information security from Lipscomb University. Abe remains active in alumni hiring and Hispanic employee resource groups.
