End Of An Era – Jeff Bezos To Resign As Amazon CEO This Year

Jeff Bezos has led Amazon, the company he founded, for 25 years, but announced he will step down as CEO later this year. Amazon is as important to American and global business as any other company and Jeff Bezos has as much or more to do with that than anyone. He will remain executive chairman, but his departure as CEO and subsequent hand-off to Andy Jassy, head of Amazon Web Services, is an important milestone for Amazon.
