Andy Jassy, who is currently CEO of Amazon Web Services (AWS), will become Amazon.com’s CEO at that point.

“Amazon is what it is because of invention. We do crazy things together and then make them normal. We pioneered customer reviews, 1-Click, personalized recommendations, Prime’s insanely-fast shipping, Just Walk Out shopping, the Climate Pledge, Kindle, Alexa, marketplace, infrastructure cloud computing, Career Choice, and much more,” Jeff said of his company in a statement.

“If you do it right, a few years after a surprising invention, the new thing has become normal. People yawn. That yawn is the greatest compliment an inventor can receive. When you look at our financial results, what you’re actually seeing are the long-run cumulative results of invention. Right now I see Amazon at its most inventive ever, making it an optimal time for this transition.”

MacKenzie Scott, Ex Wife of Jeff Bezos, Says She Donated $4.2 Billion in 4 Months

MacKenzie Scott, the ex wife of Jeff Bezos, says she donated $4.2 billion to 384 organizations over the last four months.

“This pandemic has been a wrecking ball in the lives of Americans already struggling. Economic losses and health outcomes alike have been worse for women, for people of color, and for people living in poverty. Meanwhile, it has substantially increased the wealth of billionaires,” the 50-year-old wrote in a post on Medium on Tuesday (December 15).

She detailed some of the issues she’s been trying to address through her donations.

“Some are filling basic needs: food banks, emergency relief funds, and support services for those most vulnerable,” she posted. “Others are addressing long-term systemic inequities that have been deepened by the crisis: debt relief, employment training, credit and financial services for under-resourced communities, education for historically marginalized and underserved people, civil rights advocacy groups, and legal defense funds that take on institutional discrimination.”

MacKenzie added, “If you’re craving a way to use your time, voice, or money to help others at the end of this difficult year, I highly recommend a gift to one of the thousands of organizations doing remarkable work all across the country. Every one of them could benefit from more resources to share with the communities they’re serving. And the hope you feed with your gift is likely to feed your own.”

Bloomberg has MacKenzie as having a net worth of $60.9 billion, making her the 18th richest person in the world.
