Chris Beard- Interim CEO, Mozilla Corporation – Email Address

Chris Beard is a Canadian business leader, appointed in April 2014 as the interim CEO at Mozilla Corporation.[1][2][3]

Beard has mostly worked in senior product and marketing roles in a range of companies, including HPSun Microsystems and CMO at Mozilla from 2004, specifically to launch the Firefox browser. In July 2013 he joined Greylock Partners as an executive in residence.[4][5]In January 1998 he founded The Puffin Group, which was acquired by Linuxcare two years later.

The Mozilla Corporation (abbreviated MoCo) is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Mozilla Foundation that coordinates and integrates the development of Internet-related applications such as the Firefox and SeaMonkeyweb browsers and the Mozilla Thunderbird email client by a global community of open-source developers, some of whom are employed by the corporation itself. The corporation also distributes and promotes these products. Unlike the non-profit Mozilla Foundation, and the Mozilla open source project, founded by the now defunct Netscape Corporation, the Mozilla Corporation is a taxable entity. The Mozilla Corporation reinvests all of its profits back into the Mozilla projects.[3] The Mozilla Corporation's stated aim is to work towards the Mozilla Foundation's public benefit to "promote choice and innovation on the Internet."[4]
