Hi all,

I am excited to announce that Sherwin Siy joined the Wikimedia Foundation Legal Team as Senior Public Policy Manager.

Sherwin Siy has spent his career working in technology policy. He comes to the Wikimedia Foundation having served since 2016 as Special Counsel at the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the Competition Policy Division of the Wireline Competition Bureau, where he worked on broadband privacy rules and various numbering issues. Prior to that, he was Vice President of Legal Affairs for Public Knowledge, where he coordinated the legal team and worked on a variety of issues, with a focus on copyright and internet platform law and policy. He has also taught as an adjunct instructor at American University and George Washington University School of Law.

We are very excited to welcome Sherwin to our team advocating for free knowledge. He will be working with Jan Gerlach and others at the Foundation, and hopefully will have an opportunity to meet many of you. He will work from Washington DC, and you can reach him at <>.

Welcome, Sherwin!
