From Amazon CEO Andy Jassy to Chairman Jeff Bezos, here are Amazon’s top four highest compensated executives in 2021.

No. 4: Jeffrey Bezos

Founder, Executive Chairman

Total Compensation: $1,681,840

Jeffrey Bezos founded Amazon in 1994 and has been Chairman of the Board since its inception. He led the company as CEO from 1996 to July 2021, when he handed the reigns over to Andy Jassy, the former CEO of Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Although Bezos only reported $1.68 million in total compensation in 2021, he owns approximately 64.59 million common shares of Amazon, representing 12.7 percent of the company’s total shares as of Feb. 22, 2022.

Bezos received a salary of $81,840 in 2021, with all other compensation totaling $1.6 million.

In 2020, Bezos generated the same $1,681,840 in total compensation for the year.

“Bezos’s individual qualifications and skills as a director include his customer-focused point of view, his willingness to encourage invention, his long-term perspective, and his ongoing contributions as founder and Executive Chair,” said Amazon in its filing.
