Tom Sullivan, acting chief of the Federal Communications Commission‘s International Bureau, will officially take over the post after his appointment by FCC Chairman Ajit Pai.

“He brings a tremendous depth and breadth of experience to the job, and I know that he can be counted on to represent our country well in our interactions with other countries and in managing our communications needs in space,” Pai said in a statement issued Tuesday.
