It's Andrew Jassy, the CEO of Amazon Web Services (AWS), the leading platform for cloud computing.
According to regulatory filings published on Wednesday, Jassy's paycheck trumps:
- Bezos, who made almost $1.7 million in total compensation
- Chief financial officer Brian Olsavsky (who got about $4.6 million)
- Jeffrey Blackburn, senior vice president of business development (who got about $22.2 million)
- Diego Piacentini, senior vice president of international consumer business (who got about $23.7 million)
- Jeffrey Wilke, CEO of
worldwideconsumer (who got nearly $33 million.)
Most of the pay for the executives came in stock awards, which Amazon believes is the best performance measure for the company, according to the filings. The company's pay structure shows just how important cloud is to the future of the business.
