“Alan has made a remarkable recovery since he suffered a stroke in November last year and has officially been back at the company since 5 May 2014,” said Cell C chairman, Mohammed Hariri.
Alan returns to the company in the capacity of Executive Board Member of Cell C. In his new role, he will consult and advise on matters relating to Cell C and the Oger Telecom Group.
“I am very pleased that Alan has agreed to take up this new role, as his wealth of experience in the telecommunications industry is an invaluable asset for the Group at large,” said Hariri.
“Alan joined Cell C on 1 April 2012 and was instrumental in setting the direction of the company and its success over the past two years. Without his visionary leadership, Cell C would not have been the strong competitor that it is today.”
Jose Dos Santos has been confirmed as Cell C’s new Chief Executive Officer (CEO).
“He has done a sterling job as Acting CEO over the last five months and with the support of a strong management team put in place by Alan, the company has gone from strength to strength,” said Hariri.
