From Consumer Electronics Association President and CEO Gary Shapiro on the announced departure of Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski:
As I named him at the 2013 International CES®, Chairman Genachowski is the ‘Spectrum Chairman.” Consumers and industry alike will benefit for years to come thanks to Genachowski’s service at the FCC.
Said CEA Vice President of Regulatory Affairs Julie Kearney:
Chairman Genachowski is a visionary leader, an adept regulator, and a true friend to the innovation society. From the National Broadband Plan to the implementation of the Spectrum Act authorizing the FCC to conduct incentive spectrum auctions, and the myriad issues in between, chairman Genachowski leaves an indelible and positive mark on the communications landscape.
