Jeff Bezos is stepping down as CEO. How rich did Amazon make him?

There’s no need for this American to check his 401(k) funds or social security payouts before retiring. Jeff Bezos, the world’s richest man, is stepping down as Amazon’s CEO on Monday.

Since 1998, when he first appeared on Forbes’ list of the wealthiest Americans, his fortune has risen to $196 billion, according to Forbes.

According to Forbes, he is now worth approximately $202 billion.

What does this entail for retirees whose paychecks are devoid of zeros?

Bezos’ fortune is estimated to be 739,489 times the ordinary American’s retirement worth, according to Business Insider.

Bezos’ income has increased by 73 per cent since 2019 alone, even though he will stay as Amazon’s executive chairman while handing over the reins to Amazon Web Services head Andy Jassy even though he gave his ex-wife MacKenzie Scott a quarter of his firm equity as part of their divorce settlement.
