Level 3 Communications welcomed President Obama’s announcement of his intent to appoint James Crowe, the company’s chief executive officer, to the position of Chair of the National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee (NSTAC). As chairman, Crowe will preside over a 30-member committee that comprises industry executives from major network service providers, IT, finance and aerospace companies.
