Keynote Speaker:

Robert Packett, Southeast Regional Director of Operations, Amazon

As the Southeastern Regional Director of Operations at Amazon, Robert Packett leads a team of more than 16,000 professionals, who are the heart and soul of Amazon operations. Robert is a seven year veteran of Amazon fulfillment, leading multiple business units from reverse logistics, online fulfillment, Kindle, and Amazon Robotics.

Robert’s passion is people and process. In his own words, “Investment in our people leads to delighted customers.” Before Amazon, Robert honorably served as an Operations Director and Logistician with the Defense Intelligence Agency and the United States Air Force.

Robert grew up all over the U.S. but calls Louisville, KY his hometown where he graduated with his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of Louisville. He currently lives in Tampa with his family and is very engaged in the community.

In his free time Robert loves traveling the world with his wife Nicole, his children Anna, Jaxon, and their newest addition six month old Charlotte. Currently sixty countries visited with a goal of seventy-five before he’s fifty.
