Anthony Whelan

Director of Electronic Communications Networks and Services, DG Connect, European Commission

Anthony Whelan is Director for Electronic Communications Networks & Services at the European Commission since 2013. Directorate B is in charge of designing and monitoring a legally predictable (regulatory) environment for electronic communications in the EU. As the basis for the Digital Single Market, this environment should foster a pro-competitive single market for the roll-out of high-speed internet networks and the delivery of electronic communications services. This will be an essential contribution to boost innovation, growth and jobs in Europe.

Anthony Whelan, a barrister, has lectured and researched in public law at Trinity College Dublin and has worked as a lawyer at the European Court of Justice and in the Legal Service of the European Commission. Between 2006 and 2013, he was head of the cabinet (private office) of EU Commissioner Neelie Kroes in the competition and digital agenda portfolios.
