President Bush is expected to appoint Qwest chairman and chief executive Ed Mueller chairman of the National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee, the company said Tuesday.

Former Qwest chairman and chief executive Joe Nacchio chaired the committee while at Qwest, but lost the position in 2002, when he was ousted from Qwest amid an accounting scandal.

The NSTAC advises the president on issues related to the nation's communications infrastructure with a focus on national security and emergency preparedness.
