Entrepreneur Jeff Bezos has increased his fortune by $10.6 billion.
As the publication notes, the company’s shares jumped by 5.9% this week. Perhaps this is due to the refusal of the US Department of Defense from the cloud service project, which is estimated at 10 billion. It should be supervised by Microsoft.
Amazon sued the Ministry of Defense, noting that the decision was influenced by former US President Donald Trump. Jeff is sure that Trump has a personal dislike for him.
On the 27th anniversary of Amazon, Bezos left the post of CEO. He was replaced by Andy Jesse, and the businessman became chairman of the board. After leaving, Jeff plans to actively engage in charity work.
Also, the fortune of Jeff’s ex-wife Mackenzie Scott has also grown significantly and now amounts to 62.5 billion. The 51-year-old ex-wife of the entrepreneur owns 4% of Amazon.
