Business Connexion appoints new CEO

Listed ICT firm Business Connexion has appointed as Isaac Mophatlane CEO of the company, following the passing of late CEO, Leetile Benjamin Mophatlane.

Benjamin Mophatlane passed away following a cardiac arrest on Wednesday 11, June 2014.

Isaac Mophatlane, twin brother and co-founder of Business Connexion, moves to the chief position having been Head of Sales and Marketing and Executive of the Canoa division at BCX.

The appointment takes effect from 1 August 2014.

Tony Ruiters, Chairman of the Board, commented that Isaac was the natural choice of successor to Benjamin given his background as co-founder of Business Connexion and his intimate understanding of the operations and culture of the Company.

Prior to Mophatlane’s passing, BCX was in the process of being acquired by Telkom.

In May, Telkom said it had entered into an agreement to acquire BCX in a R2.7 billion cash offer funded from its own cash resources.

The deal was put on hold after Mophatlane’s death.
