Mozilla finally chooses a new CEO

Mozilla, the company behind the popular Firefox Web browser, has been searching for a new CEO since Gary Kovacs, who came on-board in 2010, decided to leave almost a year ago. Mozilla has finally picked a new leader, former CTO Brendan Eich. With him comes change. Mozilla’s job number one will not be its Web browser, but its mobile operating system: Firefox OS.

Last April, Mozilla announced that Gary Kovacs was stepping down as the organization’s CEO and that it would start looking for a replacement. At the time, Jay Sullivan took over as acting CEO in the midst of a number of leadership changes at Mozilla. Today, after almost a year of looking for a new CEO, Mozilla announced that JavaScript creator and current Mozilla CTO Brendan Eich would become its new CEO, effective immediately.
