Questions & Answers
With Juan Wilches, commissioner at Colombia’s telecoms regulator, CRC
Q: WHAT IS YOUR BACKGROUND?
A: I first worked at the CRC (Communications Regulation Commission) as a junior adviser, having a qualification in electronics engineering, and I learnt a lot from lawyers and economists about regulation and public policy. I did an MBA in Canada and came back to Colombia to the new National Spectrum Agency (ANE), which had been set up following our ICT law in 2009, and became deputy director for spectrum management and planning. That was a challenge as this kind of spectrum planning work had not been done much before. Being there, I took the opportunity to work on our 4G spectrum auction in 2013, before coming to the CRC as a commissioner later that year. I was director for one year under our rotation system for commissioners.
