Mozilla has announced that its new CEO will be current chief technology officer Brendan Eich (pictured), as the firm finally finds a long-term replacement for Gary Kovacs who now heads up security firm AVG.
Announcing the news on a company blog post, the firm thanked Sullivan for his time leading Mozilla and said Eich was the right choice to take the company forward.
"He has deep expertise in both the technical and product sides of the organisation, as well as the web in general. His technology vision and general acumen have quietly shaped not only Mozilla, but large parts of the web over the past two decades."
"Mozilla is about people power on the web and internet – putting individual users who create as well as consume above all other agendas. People around the world are our ultimate cause at Mozilla, as well as [a] source of inspiration and ongoing help doing what we do."
As part of the changes at Mozilla it was also announced that Li Gong will become chief operating officer with responsibility for Cloud Services, IT, Marketplace, Mobile & Research and Platform Engineering.
Mitchell Baker, another co-founder of the Mozilla project will remain as executive chairwoman, it was confirmed.
