Hi all, it’s Matt. Andy Jassy took the keys to Amazon.com Inc. from Jeff Bezos on Monday.

I’ve spent the last couple months talking to Jassy’s coworkers and friends for a profile on the 53-year-old executive. My basic question was this: Does Jassy’s move to the CEO’s chair herald a new era for the $1.8 trillion company? Will we see a gentler, humbler Amazon? Is there a version of the e-commerce behemoth—that Bezos considered naming “Relentless.com”—that slows down, and focuses on placating workers groups and pacifying regulators?
