Kim Majerus

Industry Leadership of the Year

In Kim Majerus’ more than 15 years of experience working with public-sector agencies, she says she’s “never seen so much change and passion from our customers to go faster.” As VP for U.S. education, state and local government at Amazon Web Services, she says cloud became an enabler during the pandemic to “help someone stay in their home, get them money to feed their children, and [eventually] return to some sort of normalcy.” Majerus says AWS is focusing on upskilling talent and preparing for a world where everyone — including those in government — can make change happen faster.
