WIA’s Matt Mandel Named VP of Government and Public Affairs

ARLINGTON, Va. – The Wireless Infrastructure Association (WIA) announced that Matt Mandel has been named Vice President of Government and Public Affairs.

“Matt has led 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,” said WIA President and 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.”

Matt holds over 20 years of legislative and advocacy experience and has been at WIA since April 2015. He is also an adjunct professor at American University.
