San Francisco, Oct 15: Mozilla has appointed former Adobe executive Gary Kovacs as the new chief executive officer (CEO) of the company.

Mozilla announced the appointment through the company's blog post. Gary Kovacs will be responsible for leading the overall direction of the organisation and the Firefox Web browser.

"Gary Kovacs has got deep background in the battlefields that will define the future of the Open Web: mobile and rich media, and he"s been involved in building great organizations several times over," Mozilla's John Lilly wrote on a blog post.

“He melds the fundamentals of a good executive with a powerful understanding that Mozilla"s non-profit, public benefit mission drives everything we do, including those activities which might look like business as usual to a casual observer," Mozilla's Mitchell Baker wrote on a blog post.

Earlier, Gary worked as senior leadership roles as Senior VP of Markets, Solutions & Products at Sybase, General Manager and VP of Mobile & Devices at Adobe and VP of Product Marketing at Macromedia.

Gary Kovacs holds a bachelor of commerce and an MBA with distinction, from the University of Calgary.
