The Free Software Foundation (FSF) has appointed a new executive director. Peter Brown will take up the position.

Outgoing executive director Bradley Kuhn has left to take up the role of CTO at the Software Freedom Law Centre, in order to take up a more technical position.

New executive director Brown will work closely with the president of the pro-GNU/Linux group, Richard Stallman.

Brown had previously worked as head of the FSF's Gnu General Public License (GPL) Compliance Lab. The FSF expects to release an updated GPL version 2 around May.
