“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,” Business Connexion (BCX) said in a statement.

[DATA BCX:Business Connexion] is an information technology and communications  firm headquartered in South Africa.
