Chief Executive Officer, Polaris


Bradley Myles serves as Polaris’s Executive Director and CEO. He has been combating the issue of human trafficking for over a decade since beginning work at Polaris in 2004. Mr. Myles played an instrumental role in building Polaris Project’s national programs in the United States focused on systemic change in the areas of policy advocacy, training, and capacity-building. He also helped create and launch Polaris Project’s operation of the United States national human trafficking hotline at 1-888-373-7888. This national model is now regarded as one of the best-functioning anti- trafficking hotlines in the world, having identified over 22,000 cases of human trafficking thus far. 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 increase identification rates for all 21 million victims of human trafficking worldwide, and new data-driven strategic intervention efforts targeted towards eliminating specific types of modern slavery in the U.S. and around the world.
