|Jeff Bezos To Resign As CEO Of Amazon by EndyEdesonNews(m): 10:53am On Feb 06|
Amazon founder Jeff Bezos is to step down as chief executive of the e-commerce giant that he founded in his garage nearly 30 years ago.
He will become executive chairman, a move he said would give him "time and energy" to focus on his other ventures.
Mr Bezos, the world's richest man, will be replaced by Andy Jassy, who currently leads Amazon's cloud computing business.
The change will take place in the second half of 2021, the company said.
"As Exec Chair I will stay engaged in important Amazon initiatives but also have the time and energy I need to focus on the Day 1 Fund, the Bezos Earth Fund, Blue Origin, The Washington Post, and my other passions," he said in an letter to Amazon staff on Tuesday,
"I've never had more energy, and this isn't about retiring. I'm super passionate about the impact I think these organizations can have."
