Former Mozilla COO Danelle Dixon has been appointed as the Stellar Development Foundation's new Executive Director and CEO, the company announced in a press release. In her previous role, Dixon supported Net Neutrality and fought for peoples' right to obtain better control over their own data. Current Executive Director, Stellar’s co-founder Jed McCaleb, will take over as chief architect and will focus his efforts on the network protocol and adoption strategies.
"We're thrilled to have Denelle lead the Stellar Development Foundation through its next phase of growth," said McCaleb. "Denelle's long experience leading operations and business at Mozilla, as well as her work on the policy side, with advocacy around Open Internet and encryption and privacy, will be indispensable to SDF in the coming years."
Dixon will take over the role from the beginning of May.
