Aussie partners ponder what a new AWS CEO will bring

February 8, 2021

As Amazon Web Services (AWS) CEO Andy Jassy prepares to take the helm of parent company Amazon as CEO, AWS partners are turning their attention towards the type of leadership the cloud provider will adopt in the future. 

The AWS cloud unit has been a pivotal element of the broader Amazon group, representing 52 per cent of Amazon’s quarterly operating profit and 12 per cent of total sales, according to GlobalData Thematic team principal analyst David Bicknell.

“Amazon’s decision to hand Andy Jassy, head of the Amazon Web Services’ (AWS) cloud computing business, the job of replacing Jeff Bezos as Amazon’s chief executive completes Amazon’s shift from being a retailer to a technology company,” Bicknell said.
