Founder Philip Rosedale has announced today that after about one month the search for a new CEO is over - it is going to be Mark Kingdon, in world name M Linden.
He's going to start May 15th, has a background in arts, business and economics and has been working at bigger companies. His main focus? Better in world stability, user experience and reliability. He's also got quite much experience in international companies, which might help Lindenlab too, since they have an international audience.
Sounds like very good news to me, seems it's easier for Lindenlab to find a new CEO than a new CTO, though, but perhaps since this one is settled a new CTO will follow shortly...
