Brave Welcomes Dr. Johnny Ryan to its Leadership Team as Chief Policy and Industry Relations Officer

by | Jun 20, 2018 | Announcements

Brave is pleased to announce that Dr. Johnny Ryan is joining the company as Chief Policy & Industry Relations Officer. Dr. Ryan reports to Brendan Eich, co-founder and CEO, and is responsible for policy and privacy matters, as well as relationships with industry partners and regulators.  

Previously, Dr. Ryan was responsible for PageFair’s research and analysis, as well as industry relations. His expert commentary and research on privacy and publisher sustainability has appeared in The New York Times, The Financial Times, The Economist, and many others.

Dr. Ryan joins Brave’s 70-member team as a cascade of new privacy rules sweep Europe and Asia, and appear likely to be introduced in parts of the US and Latin America. Brendan Eich, CEO of Brave, said, “Dr. Ryan’s arrival underscores our investment in our trusted relationships with publishers. His voice on privacy and the hazards of AdTech has been essential at a time when others have sometimes sowed uncertainty and doubt. Now, together with Brave’s senior team, he will support publishers and advertisers so they can benefit from our new digital advertising platform while preserving their users’ privacy.”

He has a media and policy background, is a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society, and a member of the World Economic forum’s expert network. Previously he was Chief Innovation Officer of The Irish Times.

Dr. Ryan’s first book, based on his work as a Senior Researcher at the Institute of International & European Affairs in Dublin, was the most cited source in the European Commission’s impact assessment that decided against pursuing Web censorship across the European Union. His second book is “A History of the Internet and the Digital Future”.

He has a PhD from the University of Cambridge.
