Brian Wrightson

“I love learning from people who are better critical thinkers than I am. Some of the biggest leaps I have made in learning have come from work colleagues who had the inclination to engage with me on complex topics – and sometimes had the patience to wait for me to catch up!”

RepresentingĀ Digital Promise Global, Brian collaborates with Digital Promise.

Bio
Before joining Digital Promise, Brian worked in the wilderness of AdTech, which is quite different from EdTech. He began his software career at a New York City-based startup called TargetSpot, where he led both the company’s product and QA efforts. Later Brian joined Facebook and served a pivotal role in scaling out FBX, one of Facebook’s fastest-growing revenue products of all time. Finally, Brian led the development of the core software for the San Francisco-based startup Clariture as VP of Technology.
Brian recently decided he wanted his career to align more closely with his personal values, and so he joined Digital Promise and now utilizes his software expertise to build software for the LPS initiative. You can reach Brian atĀ bwrightson@digitalpromise.org.
