The FCC Media Bureau has promoted Holly Saurer to deputy bureau chief and named Paul Jackson as associate bureau chief, according to FCC Media Bureau Chief Michelle Carey.
Saurer has previously served as associate bureau chief, senior legal advisor to the bureau chief and attorney-advisor with the Bureau’s Policy Division. She also was an advisor to then-FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler and acting advisor to Commissioners Mignon Clyburn and Jessica Rosenworcel. Before joining the FCC, she was an attorney at the Washington, D.C. offices of Drinker Biddle & Reath and Miller & Van Eaton.
Jackson previously served as staff member at the Energy and Commerce Committee in the U.S. House of Representatives, specializing in digital commerce and consumer protection. Prior to that, he was with the FCC for six years, working as acting director and deputy director of the Office of Legislative Affairs, and special assistant to FCC Chairman Michael K. Powell. Jackson also worked for O’Melveny & Myers LLP, News Corp., and the United States Senate.
“The bureau has relied on Holly’s breadth of knowledge for many years, and Paul’s significant private sector and Hill experience will provide a unique perspective,” Carey said in the announcement.
