Bradley Myles

Chief Executive Officer

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's 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’s 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.
