Founder & Chief Executive Officer
Bryan Leach founded Ibotta in 2011, when he realized the need for a more innovative approach to connecting brands, retailers and consumers through mobile technology. Bryan made it his mission to empower smartphone-savvy shoppers with an easy way to earn cash back on their everyday purchases. Today, the company is the industry leader in performance-based marketing in both offline and e-commerce environments. Ibotta’s app has been downloaded more than 40 million times and the company has paid over $700 million in cash back, which has helped millions of people pay for life’s necessities, such as health care, education, food, and shelter. Bryan is a frequent commentator on mobile payments, mobile commerce, loyalty and rewards, and the financial technology sector. He has been recognized as a Top 10 CEO in the United States (small/medium size businesses) by Glassdoor.com, CEO of the Year by ColoradoBiz magazine, and EY Entrepreneur of the Year for the Rocky Mountain Region.
Prior to Ibotta, Bryan was a partner at a leading law firm and served as a law clerk for Justice David Souter at the U.S. Supreme Court. Bryan is a graduate of Harvard, Oxford and Yale Law School. He has reached the summit of all 58 of Colorado’s 58 tallest mountains, each over 14,000 feet in elevation. Bryan is a member of the Board of Trustees at Colorado Academy. He spends his free time trying unsuccessfully to keep up with his daughters on the slopes.
