March 15 (Bloomberg) -- The National Cable and Telecommunications Association said it has appointed former Federal Communications Commission Chairman Michael Powell as its president and chief executive officer.

The Washington-based trade group, with members including Comcast Corp. and Time Warner Cable Inc., made the announcement today in an e-mailed news release.

Powell, 47, a Republican, was chairman of the FCC from 2001 to 2005. He succeeds Kyle McSlarrow, who was hired this month by Comcast/NBC Universal to manage public policy and business operations in Washington.

Powell is a senior adviser with Providence Equity Partners.
