The Next Generation 911 Institute (NG911 Institute) selected Wesley K. Wright, as its new executive director. Kathleen M. Slattery will serve as deputy director.

Wright, a partner at Keller and Heckman, will continue serving clients for the Washington, D.C.-based law firm. Wright regularly counsels corporate clients on matters before the FCC and state public utilities commissions, including compliance with rules related to 9-1-1 reliability and call handling, telecommunications service provider regulations, state tariff requirements, customer proprietary network information (CPNI), the 21st Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act (CVAA), private wireless licensing, and other related obligations. Wright also represents trade associations and corporate clients on policy matters before the FCC and has advocated policy positions on the 9-1-1 reliability rules, network outage reporting requirements, the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), Connect America Fund (CAF) and other rulemaking proceedings.

Slattery, also an attorney in the telecommunications practice at Keller and Heckman, counsels corporate clients and trade associations on matters before the FCC and state public utilities commissions, including compliance with 9-1-1 rules and telecommunications service provider regulations.

As Executive Director of the NG911 Institute, Wright will work closely with the Institute’s board to continue promoting public awareness of next-generation 9-1-1 (NG 9-1-1) and emergency communications issues. He will support the organization by providing outreach, education and support to the Congressional Caucus on NG 9-1-1 and emergency communications issues.

“The N-911 Institute Board is pleased to have Mr. Wright join the Institute as its new executive director,” said Joseph Marx, chairman of the board. “Wesley’s vast experience and enthusiasm will be a great benefit to the Institute and the public-safety community.”
