Federal Communications Commissioner Mignon L. Clyburn announced the appointment two new staff members, including a new chief of staff and media policy advisor.
David Grossman enters as chief of staff and media policy advisor after most recently serving with U.S. Rep. Anna Eshoo, D-Calif., as her legislative director and senior advisor for technology policy. Grossman was also technology counsel to the Democratic staff of the House of Representatives Small Business Committee where he focused on telecommunications and technology policy, and previously worked at the Consumer Technology Association as a member of that organization’s government affairs team.
Grossman is replacing outgoing senior legal advisor Louis Peraertz who served for more than six years in Clyburn’s office.
“[David’s] passion for communications policy, including the advancement of broadband coupled with his understanding of technology’s transformative impact on society, will be a valuable asset to me and my staff,” Clyburn said in a release announcing the staff changes.
Clyburn’s office also welcomed in Daudeline Meme as legal advisor for wireless, international and public safety issues. Meme previously served as chief of staff of the FCC Enforcement Bureau, where she was responsible for providing legal, policy and administrative oversight. Her experience includes working with the chairman’s office on implementation of FCC Process Reform and as a manager in the Enforcement Bureau’s Spectrum Enforcement Division.
