Amazon: Jeff Bezos will no longer be CEO, in his palce, Andy Jassy

at the end of an era: Jeff Bezos resigns from the position of CEO of Amazon, the ecommerce giant, the company that Bezos himself founded thirty years ago. Thanks to the Seattle giant, Jeff Bezos has become the richest man in the world and has disrupted online commerce. The decision to no longer be the CEO of the group was announced by Bezos himself through a letter to employees: “I am thrilled to announce that I will become the executive chair of the Amazon Board of Directors and that Andy Jassy will become CEO”, wrote the founder. by Amazon. “I intend to focus my energies and my attention – he pointed out in the message – on new products and first initiatives, Andy will be an exceptional leader and he has my full confidence”. In the 1990s, Bezos, born in ’64, quit his job on Wall Street to sell books online, investing just ten thousand dollars out of his own pocket. The rest is history, from his first office with the words Amazon sprayed on a plastic panel (which later became a worldwide motivational meme) to climbing the charts of global billionaires.
