American Entrepreneur, Jeff Bezos have achieved another milestone as he becomes the first person ever to be worth $200 billion.
The Amazon honcho saw his net worth reach the incredible milestone Wednesday,
as his company’s stock continues a rock-steady climb that started when the
pandemic first reached the United States.
With Amazon’s share price climbing another 2.3% Wednesday to $3,423 per
share, Bezos’ net worth soared past the $200 billion benchmark.
Jeff himself is worth more than huge brands like McDonald’s, Nike and Pepsi.
Those companies are valued between $139 billion and $191 billion.
Amazon shares are up more than 100% since March 16, when COVID-19 turned
American and global life upside down and steered more folks to online shopping.
Bezos is putting more distance between himself and Bill Gates, who is the world’s
second-richest man with a net worth of $123 billion.
Jeff would have crossed the $200 bil threshold earlier if not for last year’s $137 billion divorce with his ex-wife, MacKenzie.
