On Wednesday, Google CEO Sundar Pichai welcomed and congratulated Jeff Bezos and his replacement Andy Jassy on their new positions. This happened after the founder of Amazon revealed his willingness to step down as the company’s chief executive officer, CEO later this year.
Mr. Bezos said that in the third quarter, he would move to the position of executive chair, turning over the role of CEO to Andy Jassy, who heads Amazon Web Services.
His heartfelt congratulations for two of the enthusiastic projects of the outgoing Amazon CEO were also sent by the Indian-American top executive: the Bezos Earth Fund and the Day 1 Fund.
Mr. Bezos wrote a letter to the company’s employees. In the letter, he said he would “stay engaged in important Amazon initiatives but would pivot towards philanthropic initiatives, including his Day One Fund and Bezos Earth Fund, and other business ventures in space exploration and journalism”.
Top managers and prominent figures at other big companies all over the world have sent their congratulations and support via Twitter to Bezos and Jassy.
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, noting Mr. Jassy’s accomplishments, said, “a well-deserved recognition of what you have accomplished”.
Marc Benioff, CEO of Salesforce, also took to Twitter to say Amazon “could not be in better hands.”
More About The History Of Amazon:
In 1994, Mr. Bezos, 57, founded Amazon in his garage and proceeded to expand it into a colossus dominating online retail, with media and television streaming operations, food, cloud computing, artificial intelligence, robotics, and more.
Mr. Jassy entered the company in 1997 as a marketing manager and founded AWS, the company’s cloud services division, in 2003. These have been one of the most profitable but least-known units of the tech giant.
This could be an amazing opportunity for Amazon to take its system to a different level altogether. As we know from the performance of Mr. Jassy in the past, there is a high chance of Amazon becoming the best in all. However, the system, features, and customer service of the company are already so amazing and the new CEO can put it to the next level.
Users have high hopes. We only can hope for the best when we don’t know the current internal situations.
