CASBAA has announced that Joe Welch has been named Chairman of its Board of Directors.

Joe Welch is 21st Century Fox’s Senior Vice President of Government Relations for the Asia Pacific region. He is responsible for supporting the public policy and regulatory advocacy efforts of 21st Century Fox’s business units across the region. Previously, Welch served as MCI WorldCom’s Asia Director of Government Affairs and earlier was an attorney at the U.S. Federal Communications Commission in Washington, D.C.
