IAB Europe would like to express its sadness at the passing of former European Data Protection Supervisor Giovanni Butarelli. Like many industry associations, we had the opportunity to engage with Mr. Buttarelli on some of the legal and policy issues on which he became a figure of such influence in Brussels and beyond. His grace, warmth, humour, and intellectual and moral rigour touched and inspired us. We send our condolences to his family and his colleagues at the EDPS.
Townsend Feehan, CEO, IAB Europe
