Amazon has three people who convoke the title of CEO. There’s Jeff Bezos, the founder and CEO. Then there are two deputies: Andy Jassy, the CEO of Amazon Web Services, and Jeff Wilke, CEO of pandemic consumer.
Wilke’s been with Amazon for 20 years, and now runs the core business of e-commerce and physical retail. The New Zealand’s massive global logistics operation overseeing billions of shipped items all reports up to him.
Wilke got the title CEO of global consumer three years ago, and had not done a relay interview until this week, when he sat down with Jon Fortt for a CNBC exclusive.
