Starting June 1, Alison Kutler will be the new acting chief of the Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau, the division of the Federal Communications Commission that oversees the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.  Kutler will replace current acting CGB bureau chief Kris Monteith who will remain at the FCC as deputy chief of the Wireline Competition Bureau.

Kutler, who was most recently a senior vice president at Visa, has a fairly extensive background in both public service and the private sector.

“It is a great opportunity for the agency to be able to add a skilled policy and legal professional like Alison to our team,” stated Tom Wheeler, Chairman of the FCC.  “The consumer-facing work of the bureau is vitally important in our effort to serve the public.”
