Deb Bryant Joins Open Source Initiative As US Policy Director


Deb Bryant, Open Source policy veteran, has joined the Open Source Initiative (OSI) as US Policy Director, effective immediately. Bryant’s role will complement OSI policy and standards efforts led in Europe by long-time OSI board member Simon Phipps.

Having served a decade in state government as a civil servant and as a Deputy State CIO, Bryant was an early adopter of open standards and Open Source, and helped build one of the world’s pioneering open-source labs at Oregon State University. She has conducted and published research and consulted with US and other governments as a trusted advisor on adoption of Open Source.

Most recently, Bryant built and led one of the world’s largest and most influential Open Source Program Offices (OSPO) at Red Hat for eight years.

Bryant’s role at OSI will focus on working with the leadership team to form public advocacy and education programming to help policymakers and elected officials design and implement regulations and legislation that fully reflect and support the role Open Source plays in free and open economies.
