Cellcom president Perry staying, firm couldn't find substitute - TheStreet

Jacob Perry will be staying on as president of the Cellcom, the mobile phone company announced today, after the company failed to find a replacement for him.

Perry was to step down after failing to reach an agreement with the company on his employment terms. He remains at the request of Cellcom's managerial board.

Cellcom had combed the industry for months looking for a suitable replacement, to no avail.

Perry has led Cellcom for seven years, turning it into the only profitable cellular communications company in Israel.
