Washington — Doreen Bogdan-Martin has just been elected Director of the Telecommunication Development Bureau of International Telecommunications Union. She will become the first woman to serve as one of ITU’s top elected officials when she begins in her role on 1 January 2019.  She has been the ITU’s Chief of strategy and membership development for the past decade.

The Computer & Communications Industry Association welcomes the vote at the ITU Plenipotentiary Conference  in Dubai today. The following can be attributed to CCIA President & CEO Ed Black:

“Bogdan-Martin has spent years working for better access to telecommunications around the world starting at the Commerce Department and at the ITU, and is extremely qualified. CCIA appreciates her service and looks forward to her leadership. The ITU has never had a woman in its top elected management in 153 years history, so this is especially good to see.”
