Michael Fitch has over 40 years of experience in wireless, international, infrastructure, satellite and other telecommunications regulatory matters. Mr. Fitch advises clients on a wide range of issues in these areas.

Mr. Fitch began his career at the Federal Communications Commission, where he advanced from staff attorney to Bureau Chief and Senior Legal and International Advisor to the Chairman. He also served as a Presidential Exchange Executive from the FCC to the Westinghouse Electric Corporation in Pittsburgh for one year.

He moved to the U.S. Department of State, where he was an Office Director and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State in the Communications and Information Policy Bureau. He led U.S. delegations to Inmarsat, Intelsat, and International Telecommunication Union meetings.

Mr. Fitch then became the Vice President of Regulatory Affairs and Spectrum Management at Hughes Communications, part of Hughes Electronics in Los Angeles.

While at Boeing, he was Vice President of the U.S. ITU Association.

From 2005-2012, he was President and CEO of WIA - The Wireless Infrastructure Association.
