Mozilla has announced that the company CEO Gary Kovacs is resigning from his position and leaving the company sometime later this year, the company announced via its blog, although shared no words on when actually Kovacs will be leaving the company. Kovacs joined Mozilla back in October 2010 and credited later on as a key part over the development of Firefox OS for mobile. While Kovacs will stay in the company as a member of board of directors, a search for a new CEO will begin immediately.
“The past two and a half years have been pivotal in the evolution and rapid growth of Mozilla,” said Gary Kovacs, CEO. “I am very proud of our accomplishments as a team. In our mission to empower the next two billion Web users, we’ve made great advances in desktop and mobile and in our ability to lead at the pace of the market. With this solid foundation and a strong team in place, this is the right time for me to announce the transition plan and a vote of confidence in the abilities of the leadership team. I am grateful for the privilege of leading this organization during this period of rapid growth, and I look forward to helping guide Mozilla’s impact on the future of mobile.”
