Amadeu Altafaj, the spokesman for European Union Economic and Monetary Affairs Commissioner Olli Rehn, will be moving into a policy role and out of his media- focused job.
Simon O’Connor, another member of the EU’s communication staff, will succeed Altafaj as Rehn’s spokesman, EU spokeswoman Pia Ahrenkilde-Hansen said today in Brussels. Altafaj will become a member of Rehn’s policy staff. The transition will take place in the coming weeks, she said, without providing an exact timetable.
