Continuing from the seventh U.S. Advisory Board, the new board will be chaired by David A. Gross, currently a partner at Wiley Rein LLP and the former U.S. Coordinator for International Communications and Information Policy at the U.S. Department of State. Also on the board is Matthew P. Goodman, who holds the William E. Simon Chair in Political Economy at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.
The two-year board will meet with DOCOMO representatives twice each year. DOCOMO will invite special guests to each meeting, beginning with Ragu Gurumurthy, Chief Innovation Officer at Deloitte Tohmatsu LLC.
