WASHINGTON, Oct. 26, 2021 – Lumen Technologies (NYSE: LUMN) congratulates acting Federal Communications Commission (FCC) chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel and former FCC official Gigi Sohn on their FCC nominations as well as former U.S. Department of Commerce official Alan Davidson on his nomination to lead the department’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA).

“We congratulate Jessica Rosenworcel on being nominated by President Biden for another term on the FCC and to lead the agency as permanent chair. Chairwoman Rosenworcel is a dedicated public servant and proven leader with unparalleled experience in shaping communications policies to help more people get connected and close ‘the homework gap’,” said Randy Clarke, Lumen vice president of federal regulatory affairs. “We also congratulate Gigi Sohn on her nomination to be an FCC commissioner. Sohn’s expertise in communications law and her longstanding commitment to advancing the public interest make her highly qualified for the position. We know how important connectivity has been during the pandemic and look forward to working with the FCC to help close the digital divide.”

"Lumen congratulates Alan Davidson on his nomination by the President to lead NTIA at a time of historic investment in our nation's broadband networks," said Brian Adkins, Lumen vice president of federal legislative affairs. "His thoughtful leadership, industry experience and depth of expertise will be essential to guiding the agency's role in making fast, reliable broadband service available to everyone."
