The Business Connexion Group Limited Board announces with profound sadness and deep regret the passing of its Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Leetile Benjamin Mophatlane. Benjamin (41) passed away following a cardiac arrest, yesterday afternoon, Wednesday 11 June 2014.
As CEO, he left an indelible mark on the Company, the employees of the group and our clients. Benjamin was instrumental in building BCX into SA’s leading IT company and led BCX business activity in the rest of Africa.
The board and employees of BCX wish to honour Ben for his leadership, vision, integrity and esteemed contribution to the Company. We express our heartfelt sympathy and condolences to his wife Abena Saah and their three children, his mother, sister, twin brother Isaac and the entire Mophatlane family. Benjamin will be remembered for his entrepreneurial spirit, enthusiasm and exceptionally warm personality, which are aspiring attributes for us all.
Tony Ruiters, chairman of BCX stated that:
We have lost an irreplaceable brother, colleague, leader, husband and father. Ben was a leader with a big heart and who considered wisely decisions in all facets of his life. He had impeccable judgement and most of all, was a man of deep integrity and honour. His death is a great tragic loss to the Company and the South African business community.
BCX will make further announcements in due course. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Mophatlane family during this difficult time.
