Bryan Leach

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 mobile marketing. Ibotta has more than 35 million downloads and paid over $600 million in cash back, which has helped millions of people pay for life’s necessities, such as health care, education, food, and shelter.

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 44 of Colorado’s tallest 58 mountains, each over 14,000 feet in elevation.
