Copps' Top Adviser To Leave

Federal Communications Commission member Michael Copps announced on Tuesday that his top adviser is leaving to join a European-based global mobile operator trade association.

Copps' chief of staff and senior policy adviser, John Giusti, is going to London to serve as the head of spectrum for GSMA. Prior to his current post, Giusti served as acting bureau chief of the FCC's International Bureau when Copps served as the FCC's acting chairman at the start of the Obama administration.

In a statement, Copps praised Giusti as someone who moves "smartly and effectively in the global arena. His wireless acumen is both broad and deep and he has been at the forefront in developing FCC wireless policy for many years."

Mark Stone, who serves as deputy chief of the FCC's Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau, will take over Giusti's role in Copps' office. Stone has been with the commission since 1994 and has served in a variety of roles including working as an adviser to former FCC member Jonathan Adelstein and ex-Chairman Kevin Martin.

Copps is one of three Democrats on the five-member commission, and his second term at the FCC is set to end this year.
