Movers and Shakers highlights the career advancements and accomplishments of high-level trailblazers working professionally in diverse areas of standardization, contributing every day to the strength and success of the U.S. standards and conformance community.

The Information Technology Industry Council (ITI) has appointed Sean P. Murphy as its executive vice president of policy, effective in June. Murphy will lead ITI’s global policy division, focused on developing and advocating policies, standards, and regulations that promote innovation and growth for the tech industry.

With more than three decades of senior tech policy experience, Murphy was an expert consultant for the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) during the Biden and Clinton administrations. Previously, he was vice president and counsel at Dolby Laboratories and held numerous roles at Qualcomm, including as vice president and counsel for international government affairs.

For his new role at ITI, Murphy will lead a team to proactively identify ways to support and expand opportunities for ITI member companies on issues including AI, trade, tax, cybersecurity, broadband, privacy, quantum, supply chain, and standards policy. Additionally, he will oversee ITI’s global policy teams in Europe, Asia, and the Americas.

“With deep policy experience in both government and the private sector, Sean is a proven, effective, and trusted leader on global technology issues,” said ITI president and CEO Jason Oxman. “Sean’s blend of policy, legal, and advocacy expertise and respected reputation on trade and competitiveness will help craft and build consensus for policies across the globe at this critical moment for industry and our members.”

“Technology issues are driving nearly every policy conversation across the globe,” said Murphy. “I’m thrilled to join the talented team at ITI and work with the world’s most innovative companies to navigate the complex digital policy landscape.”
