“We’re deeply saddened by the news of the passing of Michael Fitch, and we extend our sympathy to his family and loved ones. Mike was a titan in our industry and led WIA from 2005-2012, back when the organization was known as PCIA. During his tenure, he guided the association through rapid changes in our industry and successfully advocated for policies that spurred network advancements and innovation. Mike led an impressive life, with a prolific career in both public service and business. Mike hired me at then-PCIA 15 years ago, and I will personally miss his counsel, friendship, and our many conversations about music. As an industry, we’re thankful for his life and work, and he will be greatly missed.”
