Mozilla appoints former Chief Marketing Officer Chris Beard as interim CEO

Mozilla has appointed Chris Beard to its board of directors and has also awarded him the position of interim CEO. Previous CEO Brendan Eich stepped down earlier this month after criticism of his personal beliefs. He’d been in the role for less than two weeks.

Chris Beard has been involved with Mozilla for around ten years and has previously served as the organisation’s Chief Marketing Officer.

Mitchell Baker, Mozilla’s executive chair, said “We intend to use recent events as a catalyst to develop and expand Mozilla’s leadership. Appointing Chris as our interim CEO is a first step in this process. Next steps include a long-term plan for the CEO role, adding board members who can help Mozilla succeed and continuing our efforts to actively support each Mozillian to reach his or her full potential as a leader.”
