Today, we’re excited to welcome Adrian Lovett to the team as he joins as our new President & CEO.
Adrian brings 20 years of experience working in international development and advocacy, delivering policy change on complex global issues in the Global South, North America and Europe.
Most recently Adrian served as the interim CEO at ONE, the campaigning and advocacy organisation co-founded by U2’s Bono to help end extreme poverty. Previously, he played a key leadership role in successful campaigns such as Make Poverty History and the Jubilee 2000 campaign to cancel the debts of developing countries, and has also held senior roles at Oxfam and Save the Children.
Adrian’s extensive experience serves him well to take the lead at the Web Foundation as we develop our work to deliver digital equality – a world where everyone can access the web and use it to improve their lives.
Adrian takes the reins from José Alonso who has served as our interim CEO since May 2017. Thank you José, and welcome Adrian!
