Andrew “Andy” Jassy (53) has been at Amazon for nearly a quarter-century. He has served as CEO of Amazon Web Services since its founding 2003. Recently, the company announced that Jassy is slated to replace Jeff Bezos as Amazon CEO in the third quarter of 2021; Bezos will become executive chairman. Jassy is also the chairman of Rainier Prep, a charter school in Seattle, and is one of the minority owners of the Seattle Kraken of the National Hockey League.
Quote: “From the very start of Amazon Web Services, we made a decision that if we wanted to be able to serve a lot of Amazon’s consumer competitors… we had to make Amazon Web Services [its] own separable business with a different leadership team — where Amazon’s consumer businesses were an important customer but just one of many important external customers. We treat Amazon’s consumer business as an external customer.”
