Martyn Roetter is a management consultant & advisor to high technology business executives, regulators, and investors on matters involving products, markets, competitors, sales channels, and technology. His work frequently involves the application of global perspectives in dealing with the complexities of challenges whose outcomes depend upon the interactions between business and market dynamics, technologies, finance, and public policy. He has extensive business experience in Europe, the Americas, Asia and elsewhere. Over the course of his career he has initiated or contributed to the foundation and growth of several new services businesses. He has over 30 years of consulting experience with Arthur D. Little, PA Consulting and others as well as his own firm - MFRConsulting. He is also associated as a Senior Adviser to the South Africa-based BMI-TechKnowledge (see for example www.bmi-t.co.za/?q=content/bmi-t-navigator). His technical and business expertise has been used in relation to legal matters such as identifying patent positions of potential partners for a Japanese semiconductor supplier (among other evaluation criteria), assessment of the business justification for swaps of fiber assets between operators and their associated accounting practices, and the interconnection practices of a major operator. He has analyzed issues of market power and competition and the public policy and regulatory challenges of sustaining competition in telecommunications markets while recognizing that the forces of economics, the use of scarce resources, and the laws of electromagnetism combine to limit the number of facilities-based network operators that can be efficient and competitive in a market. He has intervened in several FCC (Federal Communications Commission) Proceedings dealing with these topics (e.g. the proposed takeover of T-Mobile USA by AT&T; review of the transactions between AT&T and DirecTV and between Verizon and several cable companies; review of the Sprint/SoftBank/Clearwire transactions; and ongoing investigations of spectrum aggregation, mobile network interoperability, and the Incentive Auctions of 600 MHz licenses). He has also over the past few years provided advice on technology- and compettion-related policy matters to regulators in South Africa, Saudi Arabia, the British Virgin Islands, and Canada.
