After reviewing Amazon's history and evolution since its inception in 1994, Jeff Bezos mentions that being CEO of Amazon is a time-consuming responsibility that he cannot devote to other projects and initiatives. And of course, much less when it comes to personal projects.

For example, he mentions Blue Origin, the aerospace transport company he founded in 2000, and Bezos Earth Fund, its foundation against climate change. So consider this to be the best time on Amazon to make this transition.

Who will replace Jeff Bezos on Amazon? Andy Jassy will be Amazon's new CEO. Let's remember that Jazzy joined Amazon in 1997 as head of marketing, and now serves as CEO of AWS. And sometimes he was already mentioned as Bezos' successor.

So shortly, we'll see Jeff Bezos playing a new role at Amazon as executive chairman.
