FCC OFFICE OF STRATEGIC PLANNING & POLICY ANALYSIS

CHIEF PAUL DE SA TO LEAVE IN FEBRUARY

Washington, DC – Today, the Federal Communications Commission announced Paul de Sa, Chief of the
Office of Strategic Planning and Policy Analysis (OSP), will leave the Commission in February.
FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski said, “Paul’s rare combination of business insight, technical
expertise, and policy smarts has made him indispensable to me and the agency as we’ve worked to
unleash innovation and bring the benefits of broadband to all Americans. We’ll miss Paul deeply and I am
sure he will continue to make meaningful contributions to the technology information and
communications space in the next stage of his career.”
Paul de Sa has been Chief of the Office of Strategic Planning and Policy Analysis since joining
Commission in July 2009. He leads a group that includes economists, lawyers, technologists, and visiting
academics who work on a variety of issues before the Commission, including merger reviews, broadband
adoption and deployment, and spectrum policy.
Prior to joining the FCC, de Sa was a Partner at McKinsey & Company, a global consulting firm, where
he was a leader in practices including Telecom/Media, Private Equity, and Corporate Finance in the
United States and Asia. He received a doctorate in theoretical physics from Oxford University, was a
Kennedy Scholar at MIT, and a post-doctoral Research Fellow at Harvard.
