SA Digital Villages taps ex-Cell C exec Junaid Munshi
Junaid Munshi has been appointed as managing director of Internet service provider SA Digital Villages (SADV).
His appointment is effective from 1 June.
The telecoms industry veteran was chief commercial officer at Cell C, where he was, among other things, responsible for consumer and enterprise sales, products and services, and fibre-to-the-home.
Munshi was replaced by Simo Mkhize as Cell C's chief commercial officer from 1 April.
Mkhize re-joined Cell C from MTN SA, having spent the last 13 years in various commercial executive roles in sales and distribution, consumer marketing and enterprise business in SA’s major operators.
Munshi has been in telecoms since the early 1990s, and previously worked for the Vodacom Group in various positions.
SADV says the appointment signals the company’s focus and commitment to delivering world-class Internet access to its customers.
It became a standalone entity after its fibre network division was absorbed by Vumatel in April.
Munshi, who brings more than two decades of experience in telecommunications spanning four countries, will be instrumental in driving customer uptake and delivering growth across the business, says SADV.
Commenting on his appointment, Munshi says: “I am super-excited to be joining the team at SADV. I believe we have a unique opportunity to establish a new digital dawn for all South Africans. SADV is in a great position to turn this vision into a reality.”
