ARLINGTON, Va. --(Business Wire)--

The White House today announced it has named Megan Smith as the next Chief Technology Officer and Alexander Macgillivray as deputy Chief Technology Officer. The following statement can be attributed to Gary Shapiro, President and CEO of the Consumer Electronics Association (News - Alert) (CEA):

"We applaud the White House for naming Megan Smith as U.S. CTO and Alexander Macgillivray as deputy CTO. Both are exceptional technology leaders.

"At Google (News - Alert)[x], Megan Smith became known for pursuing next-generation projects such as balloon-borne Internet service, drone delivery and solar-powered automobiles. She has also worked tirelessly to bring under-represented groups into the technology industry. Through his work at Google and Twitter (News - Alert), and as a private attorney representing clients such as the Internet Archive and Creative Commons, Alex Macgillivray has become a well-known advocate for an open and uncensored Internet.
