Coddington is among a bevy of Amazon executives who have departed the Seattle tech giant in recent years.
Peloton’s stock soared to record highs in early 2021 but has tumbled to below its IPO price, trading Tuesday at less than $13/share. The New York-based fitness company hired a new CEO, Barry McCarthy, in February.
