Marcus East has nearly 25 years of experience working at the forefront of technology and innovation for organisations such as Apple, IBM and currently Google.

Marcus East has built a reputation for being a ‘creative technologist,’ someone who enjoys solving difficult problems in innovative ways, whether they are complex business challenges or life-changing social issues. He has spent half of his career working for leading technology companies building world-class technology (Apple, Google & IBM) and the other half of his career helping brands to harness the power of technology to drive business value — including Comic Relief, Marks and Spencer, and National Geographic.

Today Marcus East is Technical Director in Google’s Office of the CTO in Silicon Valley.  Marcus attended The Latymer Grammar School in London and subsequently read for an honors degree at the London Metropolitan University majoring in Management & Information Technology, and a Master’s in Management (major in Social Enterprise) from the University of Cambridge.

He is a Fellow of the BCS (British Computer Society) Chartered Institute for Information Technology (FBCS) and a Member of the Chartered Management Institute (MCMI)

Having lived and worked in the UK, Asia and America, Marcus East has a truly international perspective on the challenges facing organisations and societies today, and how technology affects them — he has strong views on social exclusion, diversity in technology, managing technology talent and how large corporations should react to the challenges and opportunities that the advent of the digital age brings.
