Genachowski To Join Aspen Institute After FCC
April 16, 2013

Following his impending resignation as Chairman of the FCC, Julius Genachowski will become a senior fellow at the Aspen Institute Communications and Society Program. The Institute is a "non-partisan venue for values-based leadership," where Genachowski will advise on the Institute's communications policy programs. According to an announcement from the Institute, Genachowski's resignation will happen "in the coming weeks."

The last four FCC Chairmen; Kevin Martin, Michael Powell, Bill Kennard and Reed Hundt; all joined the Aspen Institute as well following their time at the Commission.

"I'm enthusiastic about helping the Aspen Institute advance its important mission," said Genachowski. "The Internet and mobile are having a transformative impact on our economy and society. The Institute has an unparalleled ability to convene business, government, and non-profit leaders to address the effect of digital technologies on many of the world's most vexing problems, and I'm looking forward to being involved in that effort."

"We are delighted to welcome Julius Genachowski," said Walter Isaacson, President/CEO of the Institute. "He typifies the kind of leadership and human values that the Aspen Institute stands for."

"Julius has been a long-time participant in our activities," added Charles Firestone, executive director of the Institute's Communications and Society Program. "His deep experience in both the private sector and government will significantly sharpen our focus on the cutting edge issues in communications policy."
