Anatel reorganizes, adds former telecoms secretary

Monday, January 17, 2011

Brazilian telecom regulator Anatel has named former deputy telecommunications minister Roberto Pinto Martins as superintendant of public services, along with making other appointments, the agency announced in a statement.

Martins has held various government posts in his career, including spending six years as the telecom secretary, a position he left earlier this month. Communications minister Paulo Bernardo recently announced Nelson Fujimoto would take Martin's place in that capacity.

Within Anatel, Martins replaces Jose Goncalves Neto, who will move into the superintendent of universalization position vacated by Enilce Versiani.
