The board has appointed Mira Murati, the Chief Technology Officer (CTO), as the interim CEO with immediate effect.

Mira Murati, a vital member of OpenAI’s leadership for the past five years, has been instrumental in the company’s growth into a global AI leader. With a deep understanding of the company’s values, operations, and business, she currently oversees research, product, and safety functions. The board, recognizing her unique qualifications and extensive experience in AI governance and policy, expects a smooth transition under her interim leadership while actively searching for a permanent CEO.

The decision for Sam Altman’s departure comes after a thorough review process by the board, citing concerns about his consistency in communications, which hindered the board’s ability to fulfill its responsibilities. The board expressed gratitude for Altman’s contributions to OpenAI’s founding and growth but emphasized the necessity for new leadership to advance the organization’s mission.

The board’s statement affirms, “OpenAI was deliberately structured to advance our mission: to ensure that artificial general intelligence benefits all humanity. We are grateful for Sam’s many contributions, but we believe new leadership is necessary as we move forward.” The board places confidence in Mira Murati’s capability to lead OpenAI during this transitional phase.

OpenAI’s board of directors, comprising key figures such as Ilya Sutskever, Adam D’Angelo, Tasha McCauley, and Helen Toner, remains dedicated to serving the organization’s mission. Greg Brockman, as part of the transition, will step down as the chairman of the board but will continue in his role at the company, reporting to the CEO.

Founded as a non-profit in 2015, OpenAI restructured in 2019 to balance capital pursuit with its mission, governance, and oversight. The board, with a majority of independent directors, emphasizes its responsibility to advance OpenAI’s mission and preserve the principles outlined in its Charter.

This leadership transition marks a pivotal moment in OpenAI’s journey as it continues to evolve in pursuit of its mission for the benefit of humanity.
