About Denelle Dixon
I lead the Stellar Development Foundation – a non-profit organization building, sustaining and growing the Internet for payments using blockchain technology. At SDF we build the Stellar Network with the awesome mission of “global financial inclusion.” I work with an amazing team who is inspired by the mission, excited to build the technology and poised to make it all come together and achieve real and impactful solutions.
Prior to my current role I was the Chief Operating Officer and Corporate Secretary at Mozilla Corporation, During my time at Mozilla I spearheaded Mozilla’s legal, policy, business, revenue and operations in defense of an open, transparent and commercially sustainable Web. I have been a vocal advocate for net neutrality, encryption, the disclosure of vulnerabilities by governments and greater user choice and control.
Before joining Mozilla full-time in 2012, I was an external advisor for the organization. My past experiences also include working at private equity firm Terra Firma on brand issues and risk assessment and managing Yahoo!’s legal team advising on products, human rights, antitrust and litigation issues.
