Chris Beard


I previously served as CEO of Mozilla Corporation and a member of the Board of Directors from 2014 to 2020. I am currently on a sabbatical.

I've been a Mozillian for more than 15 years, joining the early paid staff of the Mozilla Foundation in 2004 prior to the release of Firefox to lead marketing and product management as VP Products from Firefox 1.0 to Firefox 3. Following that, I built and led Mozilla Labs as Chief Innovation Officer for two years before shifting back over to the marketing & community world as Chief Marketing Officer responsible for our global marketing and engagement programs through June 2013.

From June 2013 to April 2014, while I was no longer a paid staff member, I continued to be involved as a volunteer in a strategic advisor role. I rejoined Mozilla full-time in April 2014.

Outside of Mozilla, I was most recently an Executive-in-Residence at Greylock Partners. I am also proud to serve on the Board of Directors of the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
