The Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources, Alex White TD, has appointed Mr. Jeremy Godfrey as Chairperson of the Commission for Communications Regulation (ComReg).
Mr Godfrey has been one of the 3-member commission since 2013 and replaces Mr Kevin O’Brien as chairperson. Mr O’Brien will continue as one of the 3 Commissioners and as Vice-Chairperson of BEREC (Body of European Regulators for Electronic Communications).
Minister White thanked Mr O’Brien for his work and welcomed Mr Godfrey:
“I am pleased to formally announce Jeremy’s appointment as Chairperson. ComReg plays a critical role in regulating the telecommunications and postal sectors and has a key role in creating the environment to optimise continued commercial investment in the sectors. It is also playing a critical role in assisting in the development of the Government’s plans to address the next generation broadband deficit in rural Ireland through the National Broadband Plan.”
