FCC appoints Zachary Katz chief counsel

The Federal Communications Commission made several appointments Friday, naming Zachary Katz the agency’s chief counsel and senior legal adviser.

Katz, who has served as legal adviser to FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski, will oversee the agency’s policy agenda and coordinate between bureaus and offices. He replaces Rick Kaplan, who was recently named chief of the agency’s Wireless Telecommunications Bureau.

The FCC also announced that legal adviser Sherrese Smith has been named senior counsel and that special counsel Amy Levine will also become a legal adviser.

Smith, who was once the vice president and general counsel of Washington Post Digital, will oversee the Media, Consumer and Enforcement bureaus. Levine will take on additional responsibilities overseeing the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau and Office of Engineering & Technology.
