Effective July 1, NAB’s government relations, technology and legal and regulatory affairs departments saw new leadership.
In the government relations department, Nicole Gustafson and Josh Pollack were promoted to senior vice president. Gustafson and Pollack, who both joined NAB in 2017, advocate before Congress and the administration on behalf of broadcasters regarding legislative and federal policy issues, said NAB in a press release.
In the legal and regulatory affairs department, Laura Kaufman has been named senior vice president and corporate counsel.
