Former Eircell boss Stephen Brewer - who headed the telecoms firm when it was sold by Eircom to Vodafone in 2000 for €4.5bn - has started working as a communications advisor for the Department of Communications on its much delayed National Broadband Plan.

Mr Brewer took up the role this month.

Since stepping down from Eircell in 2001, Mr Brewer has held a number of other roles in the telecoms industry. He's also chairman of Dublin-based iMob Media, a small startup that provides a digital marketing platform to clients.
