Duffy said the board was looking to Knott-Craig to "drive and implement the company’s strategy in the next phase of its development."

Knott-Craig said: “After a break from the telecommunications industry, I am looking forward to being at the helm of Cell C. The mobile telecommunications sector is a highly innovative and disruptive industry, and I am excited about the challenge of making Cell C a more effective competitor to the dominant players."
