Andy Jassy, CEO of AWS, will be replacing Jeff Bezos as Amazon CEO later this year. Now, CEOs and prominent figures at other major companies around the world are sending their congratulations to Bezos and Jassy via Twitter.

In a letter sent to Amazon employees, Bezos announced his decision to take on the role of executive chair instead of CEO in order to spend more time focusing on his other “passions,” which include the Day 1 Fund, the Bezos Earth Fund, Blue Origin, and The Washington Post.

Bezos stepping down as Amazon CEO has prompted a wide range of responses on Twitter, from comments about his wealth to speculations about what inspired this decision. Prominent CEOs and figures at other major companies have also taken to Twitter to send their congratulations.

This includes Sundar Pichai, CEO of Alphabet, who sent his well wishes to two of Bezos’ passion projects, the Day 1 Fund and the Bezos Earth Fund. 

Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft, also congratulated both Bezos and Jassy while noting Jassy’s accomplishments. 

Marc Benioff, CEO of Salesforce, also took to Twitter to say Amazon “could not be in better hands.”

Marcelo Claure, executive chairman at WeWork and COO of Softbank, chimed in by welcoming Bezos to the “executive chairman club.”

Similarly, Padmasree Warrior – founder and CEO of Fable and a Spotify and Microsoft board member – called Jassy’s promotion a “well deserved step-up.”
