Amazon Boss Jeff Bezos announced the move on Twitter today (Wednesday, January 9, 2019).
Jeffrey Preston Bezos is an American technology entrepreneur, investor, and philanthropist, 54, who founded Amazon, is the world’s wealthiest man according to the Bloomberg Billionaire Index, with an estimated wealth of $137bn, some $45bn ahead of Bill Gates.
MacKenzie met her husband while working for him at a New York City hedge fund. They got engaged after three months of dating and married shortly after, in 1993. One year later he founded Amazon – which began as an online book retailer. The couple have four children – three sons, and an adopted daughter.
She also heads a non-profit anti-bullying organization that she began in 2014. Recently, the couple started another charitable foundation for the homeless and underprivileged childhood education.
The company has since expanded into an e-commerce giant. Amazon was worth $797bn (£634bn) when the US stock market closed on Monday, after rising 3.4% and moving past Microsoft, valued at $789bn.
