The Trump administration has appointed 13 new senior staff members to the National Economic Council, including Grace Koh, who will serve as special assistant to the president for technology, telecom and cybersecurity policy.

Koh most recently spent three and a half years as deputy chief council to the Subcommittee on Communications and Technology of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, which advised “the chairmen and committee members on policy and legal issues arising in the telecommunications and technology sectors,” the White House announcement said.

Prior to her time on the House committee, Koh spent five years at Cox Enterprises as policy counsel and represented the company in regulatory matters before the Federal Communications Commission.

She also has some hands-on tech industry experience, as a product manager for BeliefNet, a religion content and community site that rose to prominence in the early days of the web.
