WASHINGTON – Today, global tech trade association ITI endorsed Doreen Bogdan-Martin to lead the Geneva-based International Telecommunication Union as its Secretary General.
“Doreen Bogdan-Martin is a deeply experienced leader who would position the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) to help address global challenges as the world becomes increasingly digitalized,” ITI’s Executive Vice President of Global Policy Rob Strayer. “Importantly, her lengthy experience at the ITU, including as Director of the Telecommunication Development Bureau, would ensure the ITU plays a prominent role in expanding internet access and bridging the digital divide. Further, her leadership would ensure that the ITU’s standardization activities are a complement to the private-sector-led, consensus-based standards organizations in developing standards for emerging technologies. We are proud to support her candidacy as Secretary General.”
