In his role, he provides industry co-ordination on a wide range of matters in digital communications, from online child safety to regulatory and policy issues in fixed, wireless and satellite networks and spectrum.

Prior to this, as a Senior Civil Servant at the UK Government Department for Business, Innovation and Skills he was Director for UK Space Policy. Previously, at the Radiocommunications Agency (now Ofcom), he had responsibility for policy and licensing operations for various wireless services.
