SPEAKER TOPIC

How will Florida leverage the new federal broadband/digital infrastructure funding to expand access to underserved and rural communities in our state? 

ABOUT THE SPEAKER

  • Brad Swanson is president and CEO of Florida Internet & Television, the advocacy association which leads industry efforts before Florida’s legislature and regulatory bodies. Florida Internet & Television represents providers across Florida, such as Atlantic Broadband, Charter Communications, Cox Communications, Comcast and Mediacom. Brad rebranded the association from its former identity as Florida Cable Telecommunications Association to reflect the high-tech and content-rich industry of today. Influence Magazine named Brad one of Florida’s “Great Communicators” in 2017.
  • Brad joined Florida Internet & Television in July of 2016. With the mission to promote today’s industry and issues to key influencers and elected leaders, Brad has refocused the industry’s communications from a single web-based platform to a communication model which includes social media, web, television and modernizing existing studio productions. Additionally, the association now leverages large audience partners and in-person participation with Florida’s leading economic development groups to promote the industry’s economic impact and innovations. He is big believer that if you are not at the table, then you are on the menu.
  • Previously, Brad served in Governor Scott’s administration as the Executive Director of the Florida Transportation Commission, which oversees the Florida Department of Transportation’s $10 billion budget. Prior to that, Brad was tapped to lead industry partners, as well as promote and oversee FDOT’s $1 billion investment in Florida’s seaports, airports, spaceports, freight infrastructure, freight autonomous vehicles, high-speed rail and public transportation programs.
  • Brad spent the majority of his early career working for Florida’s private-sector advocacy leader, the Florida Chamber of Commerce. Brad led key efforts across Florida, including recruiting and fundraising for pro-business candidates, building brass-top district-level networks of CEOs to engage legislators before and after key votes. He developed and led multi-million dollar constitutional amendment and coalition efforts, and headed up the fundraising for the Chamber’s $10 million-per-cycle political program.
  • When Brad is not advocating for the internet and television industry, he spends his time with his children, typically camping, hiking, climbing, snorkeling, or something active outside, and when he can, within range of a small-cell tower for selfies and 100% connectivity.
