Marcus East is a digital technology and product leader with a passion for driving positive change through the use of technology – a love affair that started when he was taught to program in elementary school at the age of nine. Over the past 3 decades, he 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.

Marcus spent one half of his career working for leading technology companies (Apple, Google & IBM), building world-class technology, and the other half helping brands to harness the power of technology to drive business value – including Comic Relief, Marks & Spencer, National Geographic, and most recently T-Mobile.

Today he is the SVP & Chief Digital Officer at T-Mobile USA, America’s supercharged “Un-carrier” delivering an advanced 4g LTE and transformative nationwide 5G network that offers reliable connectivity for all. Before joining T-Mobile Marcus was Technical Director, Office of the CTO Google, EVP of Product & Technology and CTO of National Geographic, Global Digital Director for Marks & Spencer, Head of eCommerce Solutions at Apple, and CIO/CTO of Comic Relief.

Marcus East 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). He is an Expert in Residence for the University of Oxford Foundry.
