Brian Sullivan is the Sr. Program Manager for Google’s “Geo For Good” program, part of a broader team dedicated to leveraging and developing Google’s infrastructure to address global environmental, health & humanitarian issues. Projects generally develop deep partnerships, focus on data driven approaches and visualizations at scale to bring greater transparency or create new tools to understand system dynamics and better inform decision making.
Leveraging Google’s “in-kind technology philanthropy,” Brian manages external partner relationships and internal Google collaborations to identifying and accelerate initiatives in machine learning, large scale analytics, and Earth observation with an impact focus. His partnerships experience spans academic and research organizations, NGOs, UN agencies, government / policy, philanthropy, and the private sector as well as a frequent conference speaker and project advocate.
Earlier in his career, Brian focused on business intelligence and strategic partnerships, served as a management consultant in financial services, and implemented digital divide programs in West Africa. His love of technology is tempered with the opposing and complementary need to spend time in nature.
