Washington — David Redl takes the helm of the the Commerce Department’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration after receiving Senate confirmation Tuesday evening.

CCIA has advocated on tech policy issues, including multi-stakeholder Internet governance and a competitive telecommunications environment, for more than 45 years. The following can be attributed to CCIA President & CEO Ed Black:

“With his expertise on telecommunications and spectrum issues, Redl is highly qualified to lead NTIA at a time when what used to be considered digital economy issues now impact most US industries. NTIA will be at the forefront of issues from federal spectrum policy to supporting multi-stakeholder Internet governance, and we look forward to working with him.”
