ANNOUNCEMENT | RIVIONT NAMES DAVID KALIFE AS BOARD ADVISOR
December 23, 2020 – Executives for Executives Organizational Consultancy & Executive Search firm RIVIONT has expanded with the addition of Mr David Kalife as Board Advisor. He is currently CEO at Oman Oil Marketing Company, a public listed company, turnover US$ 2 Bn operating in Oman, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Tanzania.
“We are thrilled that David will be joining the team at RIVIONT,” said Richard Vincent, the firm’s Founder & Managing Partner. “David has earned a reputation for leading transformation, driving innovation, mentoring and successfully managing publicly listed and state-owned organizations in complex, multi-cultural environments.” Mr Kalife served for 21 years with Total, held various global and regional leadership roles in France, China, UAE, Africa, Fiji, Singapore and India, speaks 7 languages including German, Chinese, Arabic and Spanish, holds a Master in Business Administration from INSEAD.
“I’m very much looking forward to working with RIVIONT, it’s a unique, holistic, flexible customer focused value proposition we are offering to our clients” said Mr Kalife. “2021 couldn’t be a better time to help boards and executive teams position themselves for success.”
Too much of the transformation initiatives fail, about 70% according to McKinsey studies. Leadership, cultural myopia and traditional hierarchical organizational structures are the main reasons. “Especially in today’s new world, leading a business is as top sport”, said Mr Vincent. “Top teams and business leaders have now surrounded themselves with on-demand teams of experienced executives for better decision-making and execution. Business leaders turn to RIVIONT for accelerating growth and transformation. Our Board Advisors help accelerate by improving the interconnection between business-people-culture. Bringing in different views, management styles and cultural heritage into decision-making has been found to enhance the execution of strategic plans. It’s RIVIONT’s mission to help our clients to lead successful and sustainable organizations increasing company performance, teamwork and culture.”
