Brad Smith

Brad Smith is Microsoft's president, where he leads a team of more than 1,400 business, legal and corporate affairs professionals working in 56 countries. Smith has played a leading role within Microsoft and in the IT sector on a wide range of policy issues, including privacy, cybersecurity, ethics for artificial intelligence, human rights, immigration, philanthropy and environmental sustainability. Beginning in 2002, he was responsible for resolving Microsoft's antitrust controversies with governments, and this decade he has led the work to sue the U.S. government five times on privacy and immigration issues. Prior to joining Microsoft in 1993, Smith was an associate and then partner at the firm of Covington and Burling, where he is still remembered as the first attorney in the long history of the firm to insist (in 1986) on having a personal computer on his desk as a condition for accepting a job offer. In 2014, the New York Times called Smith "a de facto ambassador for the technology industry at large."
