The resignations from the audio company, which included chief content officer Andrew Gaies, surprised employees.

This week, two senior employees resigned from the audio entertainment company Audible, a spokesman for the company confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter. One of the employees was chief content officer Andrew Gaies.

Before Thanksgiving, the company announced plans for a broad review of Audible's internal culture. It's not clear whether the resignations are related to this review.

"Because Audible doesn’t disclose the details of personnel matters, we can’t provide additional information on their departures," the spokesman said when asked about a possible connection.

Gaies has been with Audible since 2012 and previously was an executive vp for business affairs. Before joining Audible, he served as senior corporate counsel for Amazon.

Amazon bought Audible, which sells and produces audiobooks, for $300 million in 2008.
