Chief Executive Officer of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, has become the first human ever to amass a $200 billion fortune.

The 56 year old was already the world's richest man. Now his net worth has skyrocketed once again, setting another new record.

According to Forbes, he became wealthier early Wednesday when he crossed a milestone previously unseen in nearly four decades.

“With Amazon stock edging up 2% as of Wednesday afternoon, Bezos’ net worth is up by $4.9 billion, making the 56-year-old the world’s first-ever person to amass a $200 billion fortune,” Forbes said.

Though Amazon is Bezos' biggest asset, it's not the only big brand he oversees. Outside the company, Bezos also owns Blue Origin and The Washington Post newspaper.
