Carrie Brady, Strategic Tech Partnerships - Google Cloud
As a leader at Google, Carrie is passionate about helping organizations accelerate innovation and embrace change. As part of Google’s Cloud organization, Carrie has grown the business both domestically and internationally, and most recently took on the challenge of expanding Google Cloud’s global partner ecosystem.
Carrie joined Google in 2011 during the early days of cloud computing. She spent three years building the Southeast market and advising Fortune 500 companies on how to better leverage the value of data and emerging technologies. In 2014, she relocated to London to join Google’s European sales leadership team. There she spent three years working with FTS500 customers and ensuring Google’s Cloud products were anticipating EMEA market needs.
In 2017, she left Google in order to relocate from London to Washington DC. Carrie planned to join a local startup, but after a few months of meeting executives in the DC area, she realized how few companies were aware of Google’s cloud capabilities. She decided to rejoin the Google Cloud team, taking on ecosystem expansion for the Northeast. As part of an organization in hyper growth mode, Carrie has a unique perspective on the impact of scale, speed of change, and importance of diversity in the workforce.
Prior to Google, Carrie spent 8 years in Strategy Consulting and another 4 years in User Research and Experience Design. Carrie’s father, Terry Brady, is an Army Vietnam Veteran and her brother-in-law is the Commanding Officer of Naval Air Station Fort Worth Joint Reserve Base. Her relocation to Washington DC was driven by a need to put family values in the forefront and engage in domestic veteran support initiatives.
Carrie has a Bachelor of Science, Industrial & Operations Engineering, from the University of Michigan. She also earned 4-year Academic All-American honors as a Division I scholarship athlete (Women’s Soccer). She is engaged with a number of nonprofits and is heavily involved with promoting Women in technical fields and with Google’s Womens' chapters domestic and abroad.
