Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski named David Robbins as the agency's new managing director on Friday.
Robbins comes to the FCC from the Small Business Administration, where he was an associate administrator for the Office of Management & Administration.
"David's leadership and management experience will be invaluable as we continue our efforts to do our work on behalf of the public more efficiently and effectively," Genachowski said in a statement.
The managing director oversees the administration and management of the budget, finance, human resources, purchasing, and other day-to-day operations at the commission.
