Cell C chief quits suddenly
Johannesburg - SA's third mobile operator Cell C announced
on Wednesday that its chief executive, Lars Reichelt, would be leaving the
company immediately, citing personal reasons.
"Lars has indicated his wish to resign for personal
reasons and, after discussions about the way forward, the board has agreed to
accept his resignation," Cell C said.
The group said its board had nominated Simon Duffy,
chairperson of the company, to serve as acting CEO until a successor was
During his two-and-a-half year tenure at the helm of the
company, Lars has led much-needed transformation and strategically
positioned Cell C for growth.
"The Cell C crew has made incredible strides over the
past few years and I am very proud to have led that process.
"I am confident the company, supported by its strong
management team, is well positioned for continued growth, and have agreed to be
available in an advisory capacity," Reichelt said.
Simon Duffy thanked Reichelt for his contribution to the
restructuring of the company.
trevot noah pulling rank
Maybe Cell C should also get rid of all their incompetent call centre staff, including managers.
Good thing Trevor Noah is available to take over.
He has to make way for a BEE candidate....
@ bullet,i agree with your comment lol, so cell c can close it's doors for mis mangement...u idiot.
Two weeks? I've sent numerous e-mails to numerous managers over a period of 5 months concerning my nephew's debt to Cell-C. I finally got an incorrect response yesterday.
I had a query that was not resolved for 18 months, so I cancelled my contract.
I smell a rat - very suspicious
I wonder, is this linked to the raid on ZTE's offices for illegal immigrants? ZTE supplied Cell C's new UMTS900 GSM network equipment...
Well I hope that someone who will entrench an environment of service will take over. Because CellC's service is shocking.
Couldn't agree more - their service is awful.
I am slso not surprised why he is resigning. Cell C service is below the threshold for nertwork operators. Anywho... I still wonder why people use it!
I agree 100%. You can compare their service to government departments.
We sick and tired of foreigners taking the jobs from us.
Thing is, it is the foreigners that understand the value of transformation, and actually do something about it. It took a foreign white coach to create a mentality in SA that a black player can actually be a flyhalf. Locals do not often understand the benefits of transformation
The sad thing also is that he was employing a lot of foreign companies to provide services at Cell C. This in tern compromised a lot of local companies and was against the government's drive to create local jobs! Agreed - Good Riddance!
YOU ARE JUST TOO WEAK TO ADMIT THE TRUTH OF LIFE. WE GOT A LOT LEARN FROM THEM, OPEN YOUR EYES
AND I THOUGHT IT WAS TREVOUR NOAH..............................?
Taurusaurus,is it your English proficiency or what? Do not jump at making comments if you have not understood other people's comments clearly. Go get gramma lessons dude....
