American National Standards Institute (ANSI)
11 West 42nd St., 13th Flr.
New York, NY, 10036

Press release date: July 29, 2011

People on the Move spotlights trailblazers in standardization, highlighting their latest achievements, advancements, and contributions to the standards community.

Mr. Luis Jorge Romero Saro has begun his tenure as Director General of the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), replacing Dr. Walter Weigel, who ended his term of office at the end of June. Mr. Romero was elected to the position at ETSI's 57th General Assembly in Cannes, France, for a five-year term.

Most recently, Mr. Romero served as director general of Innosoft, and is a partner and board member of Madrid-based Innology Ventures. With more than 20 years of experience in the telecommunications sector, Mr. Romero has held diverse positions in Spain, Morocco, and Mexico, predominantly with Telefonica. As global director for international roaming and standards, and director of innovation and standards, he oversaw Telefonica's participation in global standardization activities, and participated directly in the work of the Next Generation Mobile Networks (NGMN) Alliance and in the GSM Association (GSMA).

"I would very much like to thank the members of ETSI for their confidence, at a time when there are many important topics in the world of standards in which ETSI plays a key role," said Mr. Romero. "I am excited to have the opportunity of leading the ETSI team and being at the forefront of ICT technology, whilst spearheading new developments to come."

Mr Dirk Weiler, chairman of the ETSI General Assembly, thanked Dr. Weigel for his diligent leadership of ETSI, and welcomed the appointment of Mr Romero: "Since 2006 Dr Weigel has worked tirelessly to develop ETSI in the interests of its members. We now welcome Mr Romero to continue in this influential role at the heart of the European information and communication technology industry."

ETSI plays a major role in global standardization of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), including telecommunications and broadcasting. ETSI unites around 700 member companies from nearly 60 countries, including manufacturers, network operators, administrations, service providers, research bodies and users - in fact, all the key players in the ICT arena.
