“I’m very happy to introduce Gary Kovacs as our new CEO for the Mozilla Corporation,” current Mozilla CEO John Lilly said in a blog post. “I think he’s going to be great for Mozilla, and that our broad community will like him and be well served by him.”
The search for a new CEO has taken about six months.
Lilly said, “We were quite broad in our search, as we knew it would be tough to find someone who could blend technology leadership and operational excellence with an ability to understand what’s special about how Mozilla works, and who could really help develop the whole organization.”
Tomorrow at 10 am pacific time, Mozilla will be hosting a community Q&A with Mitchell Baker to talk about the new CEO. More information about that can be found here.
