They talk about Antoine & Christian
Moving to a new senior role as VP Europe in London, I had the pleasure of working with Mr Christian Malissard in 2018 and 2019. I measured his valuable support as a Senior Advisor for Gulf Europe. I have really enjoyed working with Christian. Beside Christian elevated strategic vision and approach, I have particularly appreciated his perfect understanding of the corporate world, his listening ability, fast understanding and prompt problem reaction. Due to his long life as a senior executive in global organisations in the UK, Christian has the ability to identify how to approach every business situation with the right cultural attitude and propose solutions that are tailor made for the cultural management environment. Christian is a passionate person with a strong ‘can-do attitude’. Christian added value is to think ‘out of the box’ and bring solution to any situation, related to any phase of the life of an organisation (start up, growth phase, or management issues).

I had the pleasure of working with Antoine in Russia for 1 year where he accompanied me on my assumption of the post. I was impressed by the accuracy of his analysis of the issues I had to face. His rich background in business and his international culture allow him to quickly understand the human and organizational issues of a business unit. His pragmatic approach then very quickly provided me with concrete managerial solutions, while significantly improving my communication style. I was also struck by his precision and attention to detail, never losing the goals set for him. Finally, his positive, cheerful personality and his great listening skills make him an expert with whom it is very pleasant to work.
