Steph Deschamps / May 6, 2021
The boss of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, sold this week for nearly two billion dollars of shares of the giant online retailer, according to documents from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Bezos has multiplied the sales of Amazon shares in recent months. In February and November 2020, he had already sold a total of more than seven billion dollars worth of Amazon shares.
Jeff Bezos, 57, founded Amazon in 1994. The man who remains the largest shareholder of the online retail giant is, according to Forbes and Bloomberg, the richest man in the world, with an estimated fortune of over $190 billion.
Jeff Bezos has also planned to take a small step aside by leaving his position as CEO in the third quarter to take the position of executive chairman of Amazon.
