Brian King

Digital Financial Services Team Leader
USAID Global Development Lab

Brian King is a fourth-generation California rice farmer who began his development career in rural agriculture and small business development. Ag extension proved to be natural training for work with ICT for Development – a feeling Brian had for years before he discovered research showing similar patterns in the adoption of innovations among rural farmers and new users of information technology. Brian has nearly twenty years of wide-ranging experience creating and implementing ICT for Development initiatives with government, business, education, and non-profit partners, much of it with USAID. He currently serves as Team Lead for Digital Financial Services at the USAID Global Development Lab.
