Red Hat, Inc.
Senior Director, Open Source Program Office
Deb Bryant is Senior Director of the Open Source Program Office, Office of the CTO at Red Hat, where she leads a team of global stewards responsible for the company’s open source community objectives, as well as outreach to organizations interested in learning from Red Hat’s open source expertise. She brings several decades of experience in the business of emerging technologies, start-ups, and open source software.

Deb draws her perspective from an industry-diverse background; parallel and high-speed computing and commercialized internet and web applications in the 80s, commercial wide area networks, advanced telecommunications and data/voice convergence in the 90s, and worked squarely in the middle of the industry disruption created by open source software thereafter.

Deb received the prestigious industry Open Source Award in 2010 in recognition of her contribution to open source communities and for her pioneering advocacy of open standards and the use of open source software in the public sector. She is Board Member Emeritus for the Open Source Initative (OSI), the international standards organization for open source software, and serves on the advisory boards of Open Source Elections Technology Foundation, DemocracyLab, and the OASIS Open Project. She represents Red Hat as Board Director alternate at the Eclipse Foundation.
