A top Amazon exec buys in Santa Monica
E-commerce behemoth’s Web Services CEO Andy Jassy now owns a home close to Jeff Bezos’ monster Beverly Hills mansion
The CEO of Amazon Web Services is joining the CEO of Amazon in Los Angeles.
Andy Jassy and his wife Elana Caplan paid $6.7 million for a home in Santa Monica in an off-market deal, according to Variety.
It is near his boss Jeff Bezos’ record-setting $165 million Beverly Hills, which was purchased earlier this year.
Andy Jassy’s 5,500-square-foot property was built in 2003 and last sold for $5.5 million in 2014, according to the report. The two-story home has four bedrooms and five bathrooms. The second story has a large balcony area. The property includes a small pool.
Jassy has been with Amazon since the early days, joining in 1997. He founded Amazon Web Services — the firm’s cloud computing division — in 2003 and was promoted to CEO in 2016. Jassy and Caplan primarily reside in a historic Seattle mansion they purchased in 2009, according to Variety.
Bezos appears to be pivoting to L.A. — along with his record-setting Beverly Hills purchase, he bought a home next door and a 20-acre plot of undeveloped land, also in Beverly Hills, owned by the estate of late Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen. [Variety] — Dennis Lynch
