DENVER (Feb. 13, 2017) —Denver attorney Ken Fellman of Kissinger & Fellman P.C. has been named as a fellow of the Silicon Flatirons program, a center for innovation at the University of Colorado in Boulder, Colo.
The honor follows immediately on the heels of Fellman’s re-appointment to the Intergovernmental Advisory Committee of the Federal Communications Commission, recognizing Fellman’s long career as an attorney focusing on local government law with an emphasis on broadband and communications issues.
“Ken Fellman has been a great supporter of Silicon Flatirons and he’s spent countless hours working with our students in a variety of capacities. We appreciate having people of Ken Fellman’s caliber contributing to our efforts,” said Phil Weiser, Silicon Flatirons’ founder and executive director. “With Ken’s support of our students and expertise in communications law, he is a natural fit for our program.”
Fellman, a former mayor of Arvada, Colo., has won numerous awards from legal journals and legal societies for his work in communications, broadband, utilities and local government law, in Colorado and throughout the United States. He is a former president of the National Association of Telecommunications Officers and Advisors (2009-2013).
“It is an honor to be involved with such a distinguished group,” Fellman said about his fellowship with Silicon Flatirons. “It’s even more satisfying that Silicon Flatirons is educating the next generation of entrepreneurs and leaders in the broadband legal community.”
