Washington — The Computer & Communications Industry Association is announcing new hires  in both its DC and Brussels Offices. Alexandre Roure starts Monday, November 27th in CCIA’s Brussels office, as Senior Manager, Public Policy, and Rachael Stelly recently joined CCIA’s Washington office as Policy Manager.

Roure will be managing CCIA advocacy in Europe on data protection, surveillance reform, cyber security and telecommunications reform. Prior to joining our EU team, Alexandre worked at the Brussels office of BSA | The Software Alliance. Before that he worked at LVMH Moët Hennessy – Louis Vuitton and at a leading EU consulting firm. Alexandre holds a LL.M. in EU law from the University of Essex (UK) with a focus on European human rights law, and a French LL.B. (“Licence Droit Général”) from the Université du Sud-Toulon-Var.

The following can be attributed to CCIA Europe Vice President and head of Brussels office Christian Borggren:

“Alexandre will boost CCIA’s engagement with EU policy makers on the overhaul of EU rules on ePrivacy, telecoms and law enforcement access to data. His legal background and professional experience make him a tremendous asset to our Brussels team.”

Stelly is now handling digital trade policy in Washington. She worked previously as Policy Manager at the Washington office of the Trans-Atlantic Business Council, where she managed the ICT and IPR working groups. She has interned for the U.S. Senate Finance Committee, Mozilla, the U.S. Copyright Office, the Internet Education Foundation, the National Telecommunications & Information Administration, and CCIA.

The following can be attributed to CCIA President & CEO Ed Black:

“We are glad to welcome Rachael back to our Washington team. As the US works to update trade agreements for the 21st Century, her expertise on both trade and intellectual property will be valuable. She will be working for tech companies at a time when the US faces some critical decisions in its approach to trade that will decide whether the fastest growing industries in the fast growing sector, trade in services, will thrive — or be held back by outdated trade language that fails to remove barriers facing tech companies.”
