Little-known company Amerilink Telecom is working to open the US market to telecommunications gear made by China’s Huawei by adding a pair of dignitaries to its board in an attempt to address the security concerns around Huawei, reports The Wall Street Journal. Amerilink in recent months has recruited former congressional leader Richard Gephardt and former World Bank President James Wolfensohn as directors. It hopes the appointments will help overcome US officials’ skepticism about Huawei, which has hired Amerilink as a consultant and distribution partner.
