Jeff Bezos, founder and longtime leader of Amazon, has stepped down as CEO and handed over to Andrew Jassy. Bezos stepped down as CEO of the company on Monday, July 5, exactly 27 years after the company was founded. At the same time, Bezos moved to the post of executive chairman of the board of Amazon.

Bezos founded Amazon as an online bookstore in 1994, but eventually the company became the largest e-commerce player in the world, with a market value of about $ 1.8 trillion.

On July 20, Jeff Bezos will become the first billionaire to fly into space. He will be accompanied by his younger brother and 82-year-old Wally Funk, a participant in the Mercury 13 female astronaut training program.
