Cellular operator Cellcom seeks CEO

There are increasing reports that Jacob Perry, president and CEO of cellular provider Cellcom will step down in April, and that the shareholders are considering prospective candidates to replace him.

TheMarker first reported about a month ago that Perry intended to leave within weeks, and that he informed the shareholders of his plans.

One Cellcom shareholder proposed that Perry be replaced by Super-Sol (NYSE:SAE) CEO Amiaz Sagis, who has held that position for 3.5 years. Sagis told TheMarker he has received several offers and he is studying them.

Another candidate is Cellcom Deputy CEO Oren Most, who is considered a natural candidate.

Perry himself has recently received several offers. Reports spoke of Perry possibly forming an alliance with former Chief of Staff Amnon Lipkin-Shahak, or with former Shin Bet senior officer Yossi Genossar in the field of security. There were speculations about Perry becoming involved with the local branch of Boeing (NYSE:BA), and that he had been offered to head a political party.

Cellcom refused to comment for this report.
