Edgar Olvera Jiménez has over 25 years of experience working on matters related to the telecommunications sector, infrastructure projects, consumer protection, and administrative law. Edgar has been a leader in multidisciplinary teams and on highly complex projects at his previous positions within Mexico’s Ministry of Communications and Transportation, and the Consumer Protection Agency (PROFECO).
In his previous role as Undersecretary of Communications for Mexico’s Ministry of Communication and Transportation (MCT), Edgar participated in the design and implementation of Mexico’s recent telecommunications reforms. He spearheaded the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) negotiations in this sector, and fostered infrastructure investments by promoting infrastructure projects from the Federal Government (rights of ways, poles and federal buildings).
As Coordinator of Technical and Regulatory Projects for the MCT, Edgar also participated in landmark projects, including the acquisition of the Mexican Satellite System (MEXSAT) and the bidding of the dark fiber of the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE). Additionally, he was involved in the largest public-private partnership (PPP) project in Mexican history known as “Red Compartida,” a wholesale 4G shared network in Mexico.
