Appointed on April 1, Valérie Stival officially took up her new position on July 1. Previously General Manager of Business Indirect, the NEOMA BS EMBA graduate (class of 2017 - 2019) is now in charge of transformation at XEROX France, heading a business support team of 70 people. “In concrete terms, my position has 3 principal functions: firstly, to change the company’s culture and instil a real start-up spirit. Secondly, to improve customer experience through new processes that put customers at the heart of all final decisions. Finally, to create new recurring business through initiatives generated by freelancers and start-ups,” explains Valérie Stival.
Convictions, experience and training
This new development in the young woman's career is grounded in her values and her background. “From the beginning, I have been driven by my ability to act and put myself in danger without hesitation to achieve my deepest and strongest convictions. I also owe a lot to my training. The NEOMA BS EMBA covers themes that are completely in line with current concerns and that is really helping me today. If I had to summarize this promotion, I would say that it is down to 1/3 conviction, 1/3 experience and 1/3 the EMBA. Finally, if I had to give just one piece of advice: always follow your inner voice! It is something you will never regret!”
