  • Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos

CEO Jeff Bezos is now worth more than $100 billion after Amazon's shares surged during Black Friday, according to Bloomberg. The 81 million shares Bezos owned according to documents filed in April are worth $96 billion at Friday's closing price.

The increase, to $100.3bn, is thanks in part to the clamour for Black Friday deals - Amazon shares have gone up 5% this week alone.

The online retail mogul surpassed Bill Gates again on the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, this time advancing nearly $11 billion past the Microsoft co-founder.

Reaching the new landmark was shortlived, however.

Amazon shares are up 58% this year, enough to enrich Bezos by about $34 billion.

But as the company continues to grow, Mr Bezos has seen his wealth increase by $32.6bn in the past year alone. His net wealth went up $36.2 billion this year through to November 24-a 49.8 percent increase since the same period last year.

The business mogul took the title of world's richest person in July when Amazon's stocks increased 1.8 percent.
