Bruce Aitken To Serve As Chairman of the Board for CCIA

Washington — Bruce Aitken has been named Chairman of the Board for the Computer & Communications Industry Association at its May board meeting. Aitken takes over for outgoing chairman Ed Peters of OpenConnect.

Aitken, a partner at AitkenBerlin, has a distinguished career in international trade, homeland security and film production. He was appointed by both President Bush and President Clinton to Dispute Resolution Panels of the US-Canada FTA (1991), NAFTA (1995), WTO (1996) and WIPO (1997). He has also served as an adjunct professor at both Georgetown and American University Law Schools.

The following can be attributed to CCIA President & CEO Ed Black:

“As technology companies face challenges from countries filtering or censoring online content and services, Bruce’s experience will serve CCIA well as we advocate for better trade language and enforcement as well as other policies around the world that threaten to limit the growth of this dynamic sector. We appreciate his commitment to continue to serve our 45 year-old international non-profit association.”
