Media Bureau Front Office Staff Sees Jackson’s Return


The FCC Media Bureau is celebrating a promotion, and the return to the Commission of an individual who will now serve as associate bureau chief under Michelle Carey.

Now serving as deputy bureau chief is Holly Saurer. 

That’s because Paul Jackson has rejoined the FCC for the associate role.

“I am excited that these two experienced and talented individuals will be part of the front office team,” said Carey. “The Bureau has relied on Holly’s breadth of knowledge for many years, and Paul’s significant private sector and Hill experience will provide a unique perspective. The decades of expertise they each bring to their roles will be invaluable to the work of the Bureau.”

Saurer served in various positions in the Media Bureau, including associate bureau chief, senior legal advisor to the bureau chief and attorney-advisor with the Bureau’s Policy Division. She has also served as advisor to then-FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler, and acting advisor to Commissioners Mignon Clyburn and Jessica Rosenworcel.

Jackson was most recently a professional staff member at the Energy and Commerce Committee in the U.S. House of Representatives, where he focused on digital commerce and consumer protection matters. He previously served at the Commission for six years where he served in various capacities including, acting director and deputy director of the Office of Legislative Affairs, and special assistant to FCC Chairman Michael K. Powell.
