Biography

Bradley Myles, CEO Polaris

Bradley Myles serves as Executive Director and CEO of Polaris, a global leader in the
fight to eradicate human trafficking and to restore freedom to survivors. For over a
decade, he has devoted himself to combating human trafficking and modern slavery on
a local, national, and global scale.  Mr. Myles’ early efforts focused on directly serving
survivors, researching local human trafficking markets, and helping to build Washington
DC’s first-ever Human Trafficking Task Force.  Under Myles’ leadership, Polaris has
also worked to strengthen the U.S. national movement against human trafficking
through policy advocacy in all 50 states, and through a wide range of training and
capacity-building programs. He also helped create and launch Polaris’ operation of the
United States national human trafficking hotline at 1-888- 373-7888, which has identified
and responded to more than 25,000 cases of human trafficking nationwide. This
national model is now regarded as one of the best-functioning anti- trafficking hotlines in
the world and has become a focal point of Polaris’ growing global programs.

Mr. Myles is currently focusing his efforts on Polaris’ future strategy for the next
decade, which includes working towards better anti-trafficking hotline coverage globally
to build a stronger safety net for all 21 million victims of human trafficking worldwide,
strengthening partnerships with the world’s leading technology companies, and
undertaking new data-driven intervention efforts targeted towards eliminating specific
types of modern slavery in the U.S. and around the world.  Mr. Myles holds degrees in
Psychology and Political Science from Stanford University.
