The Wireless Infrastructure Association (WIA) promoted Matt Mandel to Vice President of Government and Public Affairs. He’s been at WIA since April 2015.
Mandel’s role has grown since then, explained WIA President/CEO Jonathan Adelstein. “Matt began at WIA focused on federal legislative advocacy on Capitol Hill, a strong suit of his, which has brought much success to the wireless industry. He has grown to oversee all of Government Affairs and Public Affairs. In his new position, where he’ll remain as chief federal lobbyist for WIA, he will also lead the regulatory, state, and public affairs teams with his balanced ability to pivot between them all. Matt is the prototype for a leader who gets things done and who moves the agenda forward for the wireless industry.”
Adelstein credited Mandel for leading WIA and the wireless industry to numerous legislative victories, including saving the industry $250 million in winning a key provision in the Federal Aviation reauthorization bill in 2018. Mandel holds over 20 years of legislative and advocacy experience. He is also an adjunct professor at American University.
