Per the press release, Dixon previously served as COO of Mozilla, where she led the organization's ongoing fight for Net Neutrality and the global effort to ensure that people can control their personal data. She also pushed Mozilla to understand how to partner with commercial entities while staying true to its core mission of openness, innovation, and opportunity on the web.

Mozilla wished her all the best on her next adventure.

'As Mozilla’s COO, I led the organization’s ongoing fight for Net Neutrality. I led the global effort to ensure that people can control their personal data. And–perhaps most relevant to my future at SDF–I pushed Mozilla to understand how to partner with commercial entities without neglecting its core mission', Dixon said.

Dixon added that she joined the Stellar Foundation because she knows that she is at her very best when her work has a purpose and when she is pushing for change.

'And that’s why, on May 1, I am joining the Stellar Development Foundation as the Executive Director and CEO.'

My vison for Stellar is big, she said.

'Stellar and SDF hope to unlock the world’s economic potential by making money more fluid, markets more open, and people more empowered. And thinking big, beyond any one product, beyond any single issue – that’s what has always driven me'
