Laura Lenhart is joining Frontier Communications as its head of government and regulatory affairs for Florida, the company announced last week.
“We are delighted to welcome Laura as a strong addition to the Frontier team,” said Allison Ellis, Frontier’s senior vice president for regulatory affairs, in a statement. “As we continue to execute our growth strategy in Florida, Laura’s regulatory and government affairs expertise will be a valuable asset in ensuring that state and local policies continue to encourage investment in and expansion of critical telecommunications products and services.”
Lenhart most recently served as the public affairs strategist at the Moffitt Cancer Center. In that role, she was responsible for administering the government relations social media, facilitating grassroots management and the continued growth of Speak Out Moffitt, and advocating for the Cancer Center before the Florida Legislature.
Before joining Moffitt as its public affairs strategist, she served a stint as a government affairs contractor and coordinator of “CCRAB” Florida’s Cancer Control and Research Advisory Council, which is housed within Moffitt. She also served as the governmental affairs coordinator for the Florida Chamber of Commerce.
Lenhart, who received both her bachelor and master’s degrees from Florida State University, will be based out of Tampa.
