WASHINGTON – The Center for Democracy & Technology today is pleased to announce four new board members: Bill Bernstein, member of the law firm Manatt, Phelps & Phillips; Pamela Jones Harbour, former FTC Commissioner; Doug Lowenstein, President and CEO of the Private Equity Council; and Jimmy Wales, founder of Wikipedia.
With the appointment of these individuals, CDT completes the two-year transition to a new board.
