Another Cellcard leader resigns

One of Cambodia’s largest telecommunications companies, Cellcard, announced yesterday that longtime Chief Financial Officer Kim Fikry will step down from his position this month due to personal reasons, according to a company statement released yesterday.

Cellcard CEO Ian Watson said in the statement: “Mr Kim Fikry decided to resign after more than three years as CFO of the company, during which time he was instrumental in enabling the company to address many significant issues successfully.”

Fikry said, “It has been a pleasure to be a part of the Cellcard family for three years, and I feel privileged to have been able to contribute strongly to the very exciting projects we have undertaken during this period. I will retain many very happy memories of my time in Cambodia.”

Chief Operating Officer Kay Lot resigned last September, and former CEO David Spriggs resigned in July.

Cellcard has more than three million subscribers, with a mobile phone network covering all 24 provinces.
