Chris Beard, who served as Mozilla's interim CEO since April when Brendan Eich resigned from his short-lived position, has been named the permanent CEO of Mozilla Corp.

Chris Beard has a long history with Mozilla in a variety of roles dating back to the Firefox 1.0 days but had left Mozilla briefly for working at a VC firm. Chris will now be going ahead full-throttle with Mozilla as its permanent Chief Executive Officer.

"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," said Mitchell Baker, the Chair of the Mozilla Foundation.
