Opinion: The departure of Jeff Bezos won’t change much at Amazon — for now
It is time for Amazon.com Inc. founder Jeff Bezos to take his turn as the founder/senior statesman — like the Wizard of Oz, often unseen but with seemingly omnipotent control — while the boss of Amazon’s cloud-computing arm takes the lead.
The change at the top won’t change much about Amazon
but could affect the most crucial choice the company faces: Whether Amazon Web Services and Amazon.com remain under the same roof.
While Bezos is often compared with Apple Inc.
co-founder Steve Jobs, his departure from the CEO role more closely resembles the passing of batons by tech CEO legends like Bill Gates of Microsoft Corp.
and Larry Page of Alphabet Inc.
