CEO

Amazon surpassed 100 million Prime subscribers in early 2018 as Bezos continued to transform the online retailer into a media and technology behemoth. The company’s all-encompassing

Its successes propelled Bezos’ personal net worth to $165 billion by September 2018, landing him the top spot on the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. He bought the Washington Post in 2013 and owns the groundbreaking space-exploration company Blue Origin.
