Robert Branson Named MMTC President, CEO

The D.C.-based Multicultural Media, Telecom and Internet Council has appointed Robert Branson, a renowned media and telecom lawyer, as its president and CEO following the recent retirement of Maurita Coley.

Branson, whose appointment was announced Tuesday by the council, is a former Federal Communications Commission media and telecom industry lawyer and former president of the Federal Communications Bar Association.

“We are confident that MMTC will be even stronger and more resilient than ever before under the leadership of Robert ‘Bob’ Branson, a well-known and respected public servant and telecommunications lawyer whom I greatly admire,” said Ronald Johnson, MMTC board chair and treasurer. “Given President Branson’s many years of service in government and in the private sector public and private entities, he is the perfect person to lead MMTC.

Johnson also lauded Coley, whom he said served since 2012 “with unparalleled integrity and transparency.”

David Honig, council president emeritus and co-founder, said Branson was a choice successor.

“He has the perfect blend of government and industry experience, and a demonstrated commitment to achieving diversity in the media, telecom, and tech industries and in the communications bar,” Honig said. “I am honored to support his leadership as MMTC’s fourth president.”
