President and CEO
Andy Jassy joined Amazon in 1997 when it was an online bookstore competing with local brick-and-mortar booksellers and has been instrumental in making it the massive internet-based megacorporation it is today. In 2003, he and Jeff Bezos conceived the idea of building a cloud computing platform (AWS), which is now the world’s largest cloud platform. And this year, Amazon announced that Jassy would succeed Bezos as CEO of Amazon, a role he took over in July. Jassy has two degrees from Harvard.
