Former Adobe, IBM, SAP Exec Fills Mozilla's Open CEO Position

A man who has spent time in corporate positions at some of the biggest tech firms in the world has been tapped to replace the vacating CEO at Mozilla.

Gary Kovacs will step into Mozilla's office as its new head executive on November 8. He's tasked with "leading the overall direction of the organization and its products, including the Firefox Web browser," according to a blog post on Mozilla's official website.

With Kovacs' past work experience, it's easy to see where Mozilla is heading. The man was Adobe's VP of mobile for years, he worked on mobile products at Macromedia, and he previously held the title of VP of mobile for SAP.

The new hiring decision comes just as Mozilla is preparing to launch a full-featured browser for Android. It could become the most powerful and user-friendly mobile browser to date, and Kovacs is probably the man who can make it happen.

But Mozilla's central focus will likely continue to be in the PC world. Firefox has continued to take away market share from the dominant Internet Explorer, but Google's Chrome browser has placed serious pressure on Firefox as a growing choice for an IE alternative.

Mozilla's current CEO, John Lilly, announced in May that he was planning on leaving the company.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
