COLIN CROWELL, Senior Counselor to FCC Chairman JULIUS GENACHOWSKI, has announced that he will exit the post in JUNE. CROWELL joined the FCC from the House Telecommunications Subcommittee, where he served as lead staffer for Chairman ED MARKEY (D-MA).
"COLIN has been indispensable to every key decision we've made and his rare combination of policy smarts, wise counsel, and communications expertise has been invaluable to me and the agency as we developed our broadband agenda for the nation," said GENACHOWSKI. "He will be missed but I am sure he will continue to contribute his insights into the intersection of innovation and public policy in the next stage of his career."
"It has been a true privilege to work with such a talented FCC team, committed to advancing Chairman GENACHOWSKI's pro-innovation agenda," said CROWELL. "Chairman GENACHOWSKI has been a great friend and the decision to leave was not an easy one. Yet after twenty two years in public service, it's time for me to explore other professional opportunities."
