His knowledge and expertise will be invaluable additions to CIPE’s body of knowledge and experience.”
Bieron is the Executive Director of eBay’s Public Policy Lab, where he heads a global public policy think tank team addressing issues raised by the evolution of technology-enabled, open, global, inclusive commerce that empowers consumers and businesses of all sizes.
