Johan Keetelaar joins Oxera’s senior team

Oxera continues to grow its senior team with the announcement that Johan Keetelaar is to join as a Senior Advisor

  • Holding a Master’s degree in Econometrics from the University of Amsterdam, Johan is a renowned expert in the economics of digital, media, transport and telecoms markets.
  • As Europe’s landmark digital regulations unfold, Johan will work to help companies, policy makers and regulators to realise the potential of digital markets.

As digital markets enter a new age of regulation, Johan brings extensive experience as a regulator and digital practitioner while extending Oxera’s presence in Europe.

Before joining Oxera, Johan was Director of Public Policy at Meta Platforms (previously Facebook), overseeing economic policy and heading the Connectivity and Access policy team in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Previously, he was Director of Telecoms, Transport and Post and Director Competition at the Netherlands Authority for Consumers & Markets (ACM), Director Markets at the ACM’s predecessor, OPTA, and a member of the Body of European Regulators for Electronic Communications (BEREC). Johan has also worked in the telecoms and aviation industries.

Felipe Flórez Duncan, Oxera Partner, said:

‘We are excited to have Johan join our growing team of Digital, Media and Telecoms experts at this critical time for the sector. With Europe’s landmark digital regulations set to apply next year, and key debates for infrastructure investments still developing, Johan’s unrivalled experience at telecoms, transport and competition authorities and as digital industry practitioner will be invaluable as we continue to support our clients through these changes.

Johan is passionate about helping companies, policymakers and regulators to realise the vast potential of digital markets and continues to operate as an independent public policy adviser and digital regulation expert alongside his commitments to Oxera.’

Johan added:

‘I have been working in regulated markets and the digital sector for more than 20 years now, in key roles both on the private and regulatory side, and I am still passionate about the technology, innovation and the regulatory issues. I have known Oxera since my early days as a regulator, and I have always found huge pleasure in discussing strategies and the economics of regulatory issues with them. I am really excited to get the chance now to work together on new projects and opportunities with them, especially in these crucial times, when new regulatory chapters for traditional and digital markets will be written.’
