Rob Meyerson, who was the president of Amazon billionaire Jeff Bezos’ Blue Originspace venture until this year, says he’s left the company.

Since January, Meyerson has served as senior vice president, in charge of advanced development programs such as the Blue Moon lunar lander system and the New Armstrong interplanetary-class rocket. In an email, he told GeekWire that Nov. 2 was his last day at the company, which grew from 10 employees to more than 1,500 during his tenure.

Meyerson said he was “taking some time off to determine my next steps.”
