We have a new boss in town, and no one is quite sure who it is. However, one thing is for certain; the new CEO of Amazon has made his mark on the world of business with his quirky personality, intriguing vision, and awe-inspiring ambition.
Jeff Bezos, the new CEO of Amazon has many strong personalities on his side. His long list of associates, bosses, and mentors include some of the most important names in the business, all of whom share a common vision of how to shape a more productive, efficient and compassionate world. His company has been in operation for over thirty years, so he has seen the highs and lows of a business.
The firm’s origin is so far back, that the owner himself was not even aware of its existence. He did, however, become aware of the world it represented after he met the company’s founder. So, this is not an egotistical boast.
Amazon’s founder, Jeff Bezos, is a man who was once a top dog at Microsoft but was forced out for his refusal to accept and adapt to the changes the company made to its operating system. It was an alarming turn of events, as the Microsoft empire is known for its efficiency and adaptability to the changing times. However, after learning from his mistakes, Bezos rose to the top and quickly established his new firm.
Amazon has managed to build a strong reputation as a leader in terms of its sales figures. It has grown into a very successful business over the years and has managed to make some notable, well-publicized acquisitions, some of which have been well received by Wall Street.
Amazon now has over two hundred and fifty million dollars in revenue, which makes it one of the world’s biggest, if not the biggest, Internet retailing company. The company has expanded in other directions as well, through its foray into television and books, as well as its affiliation with so many different high-tech firms. While some believe the current influx of capital should have been invested in some more essential assets, there is little question that it has helped expand the company’s influence.
Many of these successful business ventures have included ventures with governments, meaning that the company has long recognized the importance of staying “in control” of the political environment. Not only has it dealt with some of the biggest companies on the market but has also become a major force in various banking markets. While many other businesses have been forced to sell their shares of banks, Amazon is a firm that still holds a controlling interest in many of them.
A new mover in town, Amazon is certainly a force to be reckoned with. In an age where empires are established almost overnight, and those that don’t even have a shred of historical precedence, Bezos’s firm has already been a force to be reckoned with for decades. And, with the ever-changing businesses and growing economy, Bezos is probably already in the process of figuring out how to move on from his old job as CEO of Microsoft.
