Cell C has appointed Zafar Mahomed as its new chief financial officer. This follows the short tenure of the previous CFO, Tyrone Soondarjee, who resigned in May after less than a year in the role.
“We are pleased to welcome Zaf Mahomed to Cell C. He brings extensive financial, management and business experience to the role and we look forward to adding his expertise to Cell C’s leadership team,” Cell C CEO Jose Dos Santos said in a statement.
Mahomed has two decades of finance and business experience having worked in several multinational and listed organisations from a cross section of industries including manufacturing, retail, financial services, real estate, medical, hospitality, mining and fast-moving consumer goods.
Before joining Cell C, Mahomed was CFO of McDonald’s South Africa. His prior roles include CFO at Ellerines Holdings, financial director at Johnson & Johnson and several senior roles at Tongaat Hulett. He has also held various directorships.
Mahomed holds a master’s degree in business leadership from Unisa and is a chartered accountant. He will start at Cell C in early December. — (c) 2018 NewsCentral Media
