Meanwhile, recode has come out with some prominent names, which are likely to take the role of Bezos. The leading candidate is Jeffe Wilke, who has been committed to, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) a very long time. Some even call him as “irreplaceable” face. Wilke’s work with Amazon has been multi-dimensional first presiding over their core e-commerce business in North America then later looking after operations and customer service.

More On The List

The second name on the list is Jeff Blackburn, who has been a trusted advisor to Bezos. Blackburn has been looking after the roles of business development, product development, and operations. Next is Andy Jessy, who occupies a high-profile position at, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN). Jessy is primarily running the company’s Web Services cloud computing business, a segment most alluring to Bezos, which increases the probability of Jessy to take over the strings.
