WASHINGTON, D.C. – USTelecom CEO Jonathan Spalter announced today that Galen Roehl has been promoted to Senior Vice President of Government Affairs.

“Congress has a once in a lifetime opportunity to make a lasting difference for all Americans when it comes to the nation’s broadband future. I am thrilled that Galen Roehl will help lead the charge on Capitol Hill and with the Administration on behalf of USTelecom’s members and their millions of customers to pursue our 'Broadband First' agenda,” Spalter said.
