Verizon Promotes Exec to Federal Regulatory Team

Verizon Communications Inc. on Tuesday named David Young, an executive who has overseen Internet and technology policy, as vice president of federal regulatory affairs.

He will be responsible for the development and analysis of intercarrier compensation and interconnection proposals for evolving communications platforms, Verizon said.

Young assumes the position at a time when federal regulators are working to overhaul the system governing payments among telecommunications carriers to originate and terminate calls.

Young also will oversee the regulatory implications of emerging network technologies and services.

While director of Internet and technology policy for Verizon, he has been responsible for such issues as e-commerce, VoIP and online safety. Young also spent six years working in research and development for the company in such areas as Internet telephony, data network architectures, and audio, video and image compression.
