Washington D.C., February 17, 2022 – The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) today announces the appointment of Morten Skroejer as Senior Director for Technology Competition Policy. He is responsible for competition policy issues, with a special focus on legislative, regulatory, and policy efforts in the United States and the European Union.
Skroejer spent the majority of his career in diplomacy, government, and politics. He most recently served as Nonresident Senior Fellow at the Atlantic Council’s Europe Center, where he focused on transatlantic digital issues, particularly as they relate to competition policy and law in the United States and the EU. For more than a decade, Skroejer worked for the Embassy of Denmark in Washington, DC as counsel and senior advisor, advising the ambassador on U.S. politics, congressional relations, and transatlantic trade. Earlier in his career, he worked for the Ministry of Finance of Denmark.
“Mort’s extensive knowledge and expertise on global competition policy elevates SIIA’s capabilities in this critical area,” said SIIA Senior Vice President, Global Public Policy Paul Lekas. “He will help drive our policy initiatives to promote a healthy digital ecosystem that advances consumer welfare, protects national security and fosters innovation.”
Skroejer is the most recent hire for the expanded SIIA policy team. Lekas and Divya Sridhar, Senior Director of Data Policy, both joined SIIA this past summer deepening SIIA’s expertise in addressing the most critical issues facing the information industry including privacy and data protection, digital policy and equity, education technology policy, and intellectual property protection.
He holds an LL.B. and an LL.M. from the University of Copenhagen, where his concentration was in EU competition law, and a J.D. from the Washington and Lee University School of Law.
