Paull had been with Sony digital since 2008, having previously served at Fox Entertainment, Sony Pictures, AOL Time Warner and other companies in either digital of business development roles.
Amazon posted its first quarterly net loss in four years earlier this week. The company launched its cloud-music service in March of last year without obtaining licenses from labels, but has since negotiated deals with them and other rights holders.
