Qwest CEO to head security group

Joe Nacchio, chief executive of Qwest Communications International, was appointed chairman of President George W. Bush's National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee (NSTAC), the company announced Wednesday. Nacchio was tapped in 2001 as vice chairman of NSTAC, which is a group of 30 telecom and technology CEOs that provides advice and analysis to the president and other government officials on matters of national security such as how to safeguard the nation's telecom infrastructure and protect critical information. Nacchio said in a statement that the position would not interfere with his responsibilities at Qwest, a company that provides local phone service in 14 U.S. states and other telecom services.
