Federal Communications Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel announced today that her
Policy Director, Alex Hoehn-Saric, will depart the FCC.
Commissioner Rosenworcel said of the announcement: "Alex has been one of my most
trusted advisors and his value both to my office and to the Commission cannot be overstated. Over
the past year, Alex has been a force behind policies at this agency that benefit American consumers.
But for as long as I have known him, Alex has been a model public servant and his dedication to the
public interest is an inspiration. He has a unique combination of raw intelligence, keen insight, and
impeccable judgment. Alex also has a preternatural ability to offer calm, well-grounded counsel with
good cheer in any situation. Beyond that, he is a good friend and I wish him only the best in his future
Alex Hoehn-Saric joined Commissioner Rosenworcel's office from the United States
Department of Commerce, where he served as Deputy General Counsel for Strategic Initiatives. Prior

Competitiveness, Innovation, and Export Subcommittee and Consumer Protection, Product Safety,
and Insurance Subcommittee of the United States Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and
Transportation. Before joining the Committee, he served as counsel for Senator Barbara Boxer. Prior
to working on Capitol Hill, he worked in the Washington, D.C. office of Latham & Watkins and the
New York office of Sullivan & Cromwell. Mr. Hoehn-Saric also clerked for the Honorable Benson
Everett Legg of the United States District Court for the District of Maryland. He is a graduate of the
