Education: BA, Birmingham-Southern College; JD, University of Virginia; M.Litt. in International Security Studies, University of St Andrews

Moncrief heads business and policy solutions for the Mississippi-based C Spire, and with 2020 an election year, you can bet he’s been super busy. Plus, the company continues to expand into new markets, most recently Jasper and Trussville, Ala. Moncrief led C Spire’s successful opposition to AT&T’s attempted takeover of T-Mobile, and he was a principle negotiator in discussions leading to the FCC’s 700 MHz interoperability order.
