Here at The Motley Fool, we have several key factors we look at when assessing whether we like a company's prospects, and one of them is its management. Do we believe they will take the company in the right direction? Today, Motley Fool analyst Joe Magyer talks about when a company's CEO is most crucial to its growth and competitiveness. He then takes a close look at Amazon.com's (NAS: AMZN) CEO, Jeff Bezos, and tells us how his youth, long-term goals, practical risk-taking, and large personal Amazon share ownership make him someone that we're a fan of.

Everyone knows Amazon is the big bad wolf in the retail world right now, but at its sky-high valuation, most investors are worried it's the company's share price that will get knocked down instead of its competitors'. We'll tell you what's driving the company's growth, and how to know when to buy and sell Amazon, in our new premium report. Our report also has you covered with a full year of free analyst updates to keep you informed as the company's story changes, so click here now to read more.
