Curtis White (L'71)

Curtis T. White, Esq. is an internationally recognized expert in the telecommunications sector, both as a legal practitioner and an entrepreneur. As a regulatory expert and counsel, he has advised governments in Africa, the Caribbean, Europe, and Latin American on system licensing, privatization, broadband, regulation, numbering, universal service, new technology provisioning, public-private partnerships, and agency capacity. His telecom entrepreneurial activities include telephony (wireline and wireless), submarine cables, satellites, and cable television. His extensive experience gives him a deserved reputation of being able to sense new market opportunities and structure and close aggressive, yet doable deals.

He serves as president of Allied Communications, Inc., the parent of ACI International, which currently holds authority from the FCC to provide voice and data telecommunication services between the United States and Cuba, as well as other licenses that authorize it to engage in certain business transactions in Cuba, as may be authorized under and consistent with applicable regulations.

White received his J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center, where he established and taught the Communications Law seminar, and his B.S. from Florida A&M University.
