Cell C has appointed David Shimkins to its board, as one of the shareholder representatives for Net1. Shimkins will replace Paul Edwards with immediate effect.

In line with Cell C’s shareholder agreement, Net1 can appoint two directors to the board.  The Net1 representatives will be Alex Smith and David Shimkins. Net1 recently made these changes to its board.

Shimkins is said to be a highly proficient deal executive with a deep knowledge of debt and capital markets and experience across a variety of industry sectors. He is the founder of Nitinol Capital, a company that invests in and facilitates alternative debt and equity transactions.

Prior to this, he was a partner at Calculus Capital and Capital Investment Advisory and also held positions at Grindrod Bank and Brait Merchant Bank.

He is a Chartered Accountant and holds a Bachelor in Accounting Science with Honours from UNISA as well as a Higher Diploma in Tax Law.
