Mr. Mats Granryd

Director General | GSMA

As Director General, Mats Granryd leads the GSMA in supporting its global membership through a range of industry programmes, advocacy initiatives and industry-convening events.

Mats is a strong proponent of sustainability and led the mobile industry in becoming the first sector to broadly commit to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2016. He is now spearheading initiatives to amplify and accelerate the mobile industry’s impact on all 17 of the SDGs, across both developed and developing markets.

Supporting this, Mats serves on the Broadband Commission for Sustainable Development, chairing the Working Group on Digital Gender Divide to foster the equal inclusion of women and girls in broadband access and use, and he is also a leader with The B Team.
