On Jeff Bezos's Heir Apparent

Jason Del Rey reports for Recode that Amazon's chief exec knows his successor:

At 50 years old, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos said he’s having so much fun that he still dances into the office each morning. But for perhaps the first time publicly, Bezos acknowledged today that he has chosen a successor to take over when he leaves the top job. “There is a succession plan,” Bezos said in an onstage interview on Tuesday with Henry Blodget, CEO of Business Insider, in which Bezos is an investor. “There is someone who would take over.” Blodget, of course, asked Bezos to divulge who it is. Bezos didn’t budge, calling it a “secret,” before releasing his trademark bellowing laugh.
