Commerce fills high-tech jobs

The Commerce Department has new leaders in three of its top technology jobs.

The Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee last month approved Kelly Carnes as assistant secretary of technology policy, Gregory L. Rohde as assistant secretary for communications and information, and Cheryl Shavers as undersecretary for technology.

Carnes will identify barriers to the rapid development and deployment of technology by industry.

Rohde will develop policies to regulate the telecommunications and information technology industries. He will also be the administrator of the National Telecommunications and Information Administration.

Shavers will oversee Commerce's Technology Administration, which includes the Office of Technology Policy, the National Institutes of Standards and Technology, the National Technical Information Service, and the Office of Space Commercialization.
