    Brian McBride is the former CEO of Amazon.co.uk and among the world’s most influential digital-business leaders. He is now chairman of Trainline PLC and a non-executive director at investment firms Standard Life Aberdeen and Kinnevik AB.

    When McBride was named CEO of Amazon.co.uk, the company had recently established itself as an online retailer of consumer goods.

Between 2006 and 2011, he oversaw crucial innovations to Amazon’s business, including Amazon Marketplace and Amazon Prime.

With Standard Life Aberdeen and Kinnevik, he helps guide two of the world’s most influential investment firms.

    McBride’s groundbreaking leadership extends to public policy. That is to say, he sits on the UK’s Digital Advisory Board and is a director on the Board of the Ministry of Defence. He has also served as a non-executive director of the BBC.
