WASHINGTON, May 4, 2010 – Colin Crowell, a senior counselor to Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski, will leave the FCC in June.

“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.

Prior to serving as Genachowski’s top counselor, Crowell worked on Capitol Hill. He served as the top telecommunications staffer on the House Telecommunications Subcommittee to Chairman Ed Markey, D-Mass., and was the lead staffer for Markey on numerous laws, including the requirement in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act requiring the FCC to develop a National Broadband Plan, and the Telecommunications Act of 1996.

“It has been a true privilege to work with such a talented FCC team, committed to advancing Chairman Genachowski’s pro-innovation agenda,” Crowell said. “Chairman Genachowski has been a great friend and the decision to leave was not an easy one.  Yet after 22 years in public service, it’s time for me to explore other professional opportunities.”
