PHILADELPHIA, May 24, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cofounders of Connexus Technology, Lawrence James, President & CEO, and Christopher Holland II, Chief Operating Officer, were honored by Drexel University for achievement in entrepreneurship. The Alumni Entrepreneur Award was awarded to the pair based on initiative, innovation, decision-making, risk-taking, and tenacity in business. The award also recognized their ability to persevere despite systemic inequities. Connexus, which is a IT Staffing and Managed IT Services company, has overcome many obstacles in order to succeed, and this award recognized their ability to realize their goals despite those challenges.   

Each year, Drexel recognizes alumni for their achievements in their profession and the community. The university encourages all members of the alumni and university community to participate in the awards process by sharing the achievements of alumni, colleagues and friends with the Awards Committee for nomination. Both Mr. James and Mr. Holland were nominated by the college in which they received their degrees: The College of Computing & Informatics.  

Mr. James said, "It's a great honor to be recognized by our alma mater, Drexel University. I have so much pride in this institution which provided an excellent foundation for the creation of our company. If it were not for Drexel, our incredible team, much prayer, and determination to succeed, Connexus would not be where it is today."
