HOLLYWOOD, Fla., January 24, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Neptuno USA, Corp is pleased to announce Chairwoman Rosenworcel’s appointment of Chief Executive Officer Leticia Latino van-Splunteren to the FCC’s Telecommunications Interagency Working Group (Working Group). The Working Group, created by the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and comprised of representatives appointed by the FCC, Department of Labor, Department of Commerce, and the Department of Education, is tasked with preparing a report to provide Congress with recommendations on how to address the workforce needs of the telecommunications industry by no later than January 14, 2023.

Leticia has been actively involved in advocating for the issues faced by the broadband workforce and the contractor’s companies that employs it. She has been a fierce advocate of embracing DOL’s Telecommunications Industry Registered Apprenticeship Program (TIRAP) as a vehicle of standardizing the industry’s occupations and career paths.

Leticia co-chaired the Jobs and Training Working Group of the FCC’s Broadband Advisory Committee from 2019 to 2021.

"I am honored and humbled by Chairwoman Rosenworcel’s appointment," said Latino van-Splunteren. "There’s so much that needs to be done with regards to our workforce needs and safety, and I am confident that the work that will be done in this Working Group will produce actionable recommendations to be presented to Congress on how we can develop a highly trained and diverse workforce capable to skillfully and safely execute the aggressive broadband deployment plan that our nation has."
