Chris Beard becomes Mozilla CEO

Mozilla, the company behind the Firefox browser and Firefox mobile OS, has appointed Chris Beard as CEO. He’d been the company’s interim CEO since April after Brendan Eich stepped down.

Mr Beard originally joined Mozilla ten years ago and had held the role of Chief Marketing Officer before leaving in 2013 to work with venture capital firm Greylock Partners.

In a blog post, Mozilla chair Mitchell Baker said “Chris has a keen sense of where Mozilla has been – and where we’re headed. He has unique experience connecting with every constituency that touches our products, including consumers, partners and community members. There’s simply no better person to lead Mozilla as we extend our impact from Firefox on the desktop to the worlds of mobile devices and services.”
