WeWork said Tuesday that 11-year Amazon executive Sebastian Gunningham is joining the co-working company as vice chair. Gunningham will report to co-founder and CEO Adam Neumann.

Why it matters: It gives the company another experienced leader as it seeks to grow beyond its roots. According to Fortune, though, the company hasn't even fully decided what duties Gunningham will take on.
