By | May 12, 2010 | 2 Comments

Boom! John Lilly Steps Down as Mozilla CEOIt’s been barely two years since John Lilly became a CEO of Mozilla Corporation, and as it appears, he won’t be staying in this position any longer.

Mitchell Baker, the former CEO of Mozilla Corp has published the following announcement:

“Sometime this year John will step down from his role as CEO at Mozilla to join the venture firm Greylock Partners, returning to his original plan of investing. John will remain on the Board of the Mozilla Corporation. And he will also remain at Mozilla during the transition. The timing of this announcement — just as we begin a formal search for a new CEO — is to make this process more open than is generally the case and is a reflection of the uniqueness of Mozilla as a public benefit organization dedicated to openness and participation in Internet life.”

John Lilly has wrote a post about his decision as well.
