A visit from the CEO of Altavia Group, Raphaël Palti

We recently had the honour of welcoming our CEO Raphael Palti, to meet with both Altavia HRG and Altavia UK colleagues.

His visit came in time to mark the official opening of our newly refurbished office hub, a new and collaborative meeting space for all UK Altavian’s and was of course marked in a style that can only be done in real life – with a traditional cutting of the ribbon!

The ceremony marked a new era for both UK businesses, uniting under the Altavia brand along with 65 other global businesses that make up one of world’s largest and most successful independent international groups: each one dedicated to the service of retail and brands.

Alongside UK Managing Directors, Joe Ward and Nick White, our teams shared our new vision for the future, our new branding and ambitious plans as to how we’re aiming to set the standard for what’s possible for brands and retailers.

Raphael also had a whistle stop tour of some our client work as he toured the building which brought to life the some of the amazing work we deliver every day for our clients from our major retail clients to some of the world famous FMCG brands we work with, as well as some of the superb activations we design and execute in travel retail.

We also had the chance to put the boss under the spotlight in a fantastic, no holds barred Q&A session. The expertise and the wisdom he’s gained over the nearly 40 years since starting Altavia was clear to see in every answer. His passion for retail, for clients and for all of his team undiminished, even after nearly 40 years since setting up the business.

And we managed to get the great man to record a quick message to all our future clients!
