Can Amazon’s next boss fill Jeff Bezos’s supersized boots?
Andy Jassy will take over a firm on a roll — that does not make dilemmas in his in-tray any easier. "Mr Jassy is in any case more of a continuity candidate than a revolutionary. Brian Olsavsky, Amazon’s finance chief, reassured analysts on the earnings call that 'He’s been here almost as long as Jeff.'

He comes across as detail-oriented and more than a little nerdy — much like Mr Bezos in his first couple of decades in charge." The Economist contemplates.
