Opera Co-Founder Quits

By Jamie Pert - Jan 5, 2010

One of the co-founders of the popular web browser Opera has stepped down, not only was Jon von Tetzchner a co-founder but he was also the companies CEO.

Jon von Tetzchner co-founded Opera in 1995 and ever since has been the companies CEO, it is thought that Lars Boilesen will be Opera’s new boss.

Boilesen has had quite a long career with Opera, previously he has worked as the company’s sales boss (from 2000 and 2005) and more recently has worked as “a veep on the company’s board of directors”.

Von Tetzchner will still be working for Opera, however he will now just be a strategic consultant, for more information check out TheRegister.
