Back in May, 2010, John Lilly has announced about his decision to resign as CEO of the Mozilla Corporation.
Yesterday however, company has revealed its new CEO: Gary Kovacs, who is currently the senior vice president of mobile products at SAP and will be taking his role later next month, on November 8th.
According to reports, he was also a general manager of mobile at Adobe Systems.
Here’s what John Lilly had to say about Gary:
So he’s got deep background in the battlefields that will define the future of the Open Web: mobile and rich media, and he’s been involved in building great organizations several times over.
But beyond all that, it’s his personality and humanity that really made us feel like he’d be a great fit for Mozilla. He’s a great communicator and a great listener. He understands that Mozilla is a unique organization, with unusual strengths and weaknesses, and really embraces that difference. But he’s also ready and able to help us do more with what we’ve built, and deliver even more towards Mozilla’s mission of making the Web more participatory and more open.
Mobile is the future?
