Kevin J. Martin, former FCC chairman, named to Corning Board of Directors

Corning Incorporated today appointed Kevin J. Martin, former chairman of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC), to Corning’s board of directors, effective Feb. 5.  

Martin will also serve on the board’s audit and finance committees.

He will hold office until Corning’s annual meeting of shareholders on April 25, 2013, at which time he will stand for election to a one-year term. His appointment brings the number of Corning directors to 14.

Martin, 46, brings deep experience to the board, particularly in the telecommunications, economics, governmental, and legal arenas. A former legal adviser to FCC Commissioner Harold Furchtgott-Roth and strategist in the George W. Bush presidential campaign, he joined the Bush White House as special assistant to the president for economic policy and served on the National Economic Council. In 2001, he became a member of the FCC. The president named him chairman of the commission in 2005.

He stepped down as FCC chairman in 2009 to become senior fellow at the Aspen Institute in the think tank’s Communications and Society program. He is currently a partner and co-chair of Patton Boggs LLP in the Washington law firm’s Technology and Communications practice.

Martin is a cum laude graduate from Harvard Law School. He earned his bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He also holds a master’s degree in public policy from Duke University.
