Bezos

President / CEO / Chairman

The world’s richest man continues to push Amazon into new territories, with the company’s Prime Video service reeling in 47 Emmy nominations this summer and Amazon demonstrating its first delivery drones in June. He made headlines in late 2018 for raising the minimum wage of company employees to $15 an hour, and last fall Bezos himself announced the $2 billion Day One philanthropic fund to aid homeless families and open preschools. Alas, perhaps the biggest headlines went to Bezos’ spat with the publisher of the National Enquirer, which the e-commerce billionaire accuses of blackmail. Bezos’ own media ambitions led him to buy the Washington Post in 2013, and his space-exploration company Blue Origin is working on plans to move heavy industry off this planet.
