Breakfast Media CEO Drew Clark has led the Broadband Breakfast community since 2008. As Editor and Publisher, he brings experts and practitioners together to advance the benefits provided by broadband. You can find him on LinkedIn.

An early proponent of better broadband, better lives, Clark founded Broadband Census as a way to crowdsource broadband data left unpublished by the Federal Communications Commission. Then, the Broadband Breakfast Club helped drive debate around broadband investments under the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Clark was appointed Executive Director of the Partnership for a Connected Illinois, the state broadband initiative, under Gov. Pat Quinn in 2010. There, he led a combined federal and state effort of fiber-optic and wireless infrastructure investments, including broadband mapping, economic development and digital literacy training. He served as President of the Rural Telecommunications Congress, and is a nationally recognized telecommunications attorney
