Matthew Szulik announced today that he will be resigning from the CEO and President roles, but retaining his Chairman position on January 1st.

Matthew has been a tremendous supporter of the Fedora Project, and he deserves a lot of thanks from our entire community for the commitment that he has made. He truly understands that commitment to Fedora is what makes Red Hat a special company, and it is very sad for me to see him stepping down -- he has been a friend, mentor, coach, and leader.

Jim Whitehurst steps into the role as our new CEO. I have not met him, but he runs Fedora Core 6 and Fedora 7 on two of his machines, and Slackware on a third, so that's a good first impression.
