Former FCC chairman Kevin Martin has joined the board of directors of Xtera Communications (http://www.xtera.com/).

The company, which deploys network infrastructure, pointed to Martin's deregulatory policies that it said spurred infrastructure investment.

"We are honored that Chairman Martin has accepted a position on our board," said Xtera Chairman Jon Bayless in a statement. "Kevin is one of today's leading experts in telecommunications and technology policy. His wealth of experience as a telecom policymaker and his global perspective across a broad range of industry issues will be invaluable to guiding and influencing the company's strategic direction."

Martin exited the FCC in January, joining the Aspen Institute as a senior fellow.
