Salmon leaves COMPTEL for lobbying job

Just days after the COMPTEL trade group's annual spring conference, Matthew Salmon has resigned as president of the competitive carrier association to join Arizona-based lobbying firm Policy Impact. COMPTEL CEO Jerry James will take over Salmon's day-to-day responsibilities, according to a press release.

The roles of president and CEO at COMPTEL historically had been held by a single person until James became CEO and Salmon became president in December 2007. Some attendees of the recent Spring 2009 COMPTEL Plus event reported that Salmon, a former Republican Congressman from Arizona, had been an effective and enthusiastic president for the association.
