Charter Communications has beefed up its policy presence in Washington D.C. with the recent addition of Christianna Lewis Barnhart, who joined the company as vice president, regulatory affairs.
Barnhart, who started her new job today, now reports to Alex Hoehn-Saric, senior vice president, government affairs.
"Christianna's wide-ranging knowledge of telecommunications regulations will be a tremendous asset to Charter," said Hoehn-Saric. "Christianna is an ideal choice to advance Charter's regulatory policies and will immediately play a significant role in managing the Company's interaction with agency officials and monitoring regulatory proceedings."
Prior to joining Charter, Barnhart managed the universal service rural health care program in the Telecommunications Access Policy Division at the Federal Communications Commission. Barnhart held several positions with the FCC since 2011.
Before the FCC, Barnhart served as legislative counsel at Bernstein Strategy Group and Associate at Finnegan, Henderson
