TechNet has good reasons for optimism, including the fact that Biden’s chief of staff Ron Klain is a former TechNet member and sat on the association’s executive council. Klain, with a long resume in Democratic politics and policy, also was general counsel and executive vice president of Revolution, a venture capital firm. “
He is very knowledgeable on tech,” said TechNet CEO Linda Moore, herself a veteran of four Democratic administrations. “He’ll bring a lot to the table. He’s a thoughtful person on these issues.”
Further, many representatives of major technology companies are on the transition team. Moore sees not just expertise, but predictability.
“There are a lot of very experienced hands who know exactly what they’re doing,” Moore said. “I have great confidence in them and I know that they know exactly what they’re doing.
“More than anything, really, we are just pleased to have a more transparent and consistent and predictable transition in place,” she said.
