Ilsa Godlovitch is an expert in EU telecoms regulation and policy with more than 15 years’ experience in the sector.
Prior to joining WIK in 2012, Ilsa was a Director at the European Competitive Telecommunications Association (ECTA), where she developed and presented recommendations on public policy and telecoms regulation to the European institutions on behalf of more than 100 operators. A key research project she led during this time was the ECTA Regulatory Scorecard, which benchmarked institutional and regulatory frameworks and market outcomes for telecoms across 22 European countries.
Prior to ECTA, Ilsa was EU Affairs Director at Cable & Wireless and also supported C&W’s integrated incumbent fixed and mobile telecoms businesses internationally during a period of widespread market liberalisation.
From 1998-2002, Ilsa was senior policy advisor at the UK telecoms regulator Oftel. During that period she was responsible for Oftel’s first analysis of the broadband market, which led to the liberalisation of broadband Internet services through unbundling of the local loop. She was also responsible, together with the Ministry for trade and industry, for developing policy and negotiating on behalf of the UK Government on the 2001 EU Unbundling Regulation and 2003 EU Telecoms Framework.
Ilsa has an MA in classics from Oxford University and studied postgraduate economics at London University.
