Johnny Ingle, who has been instrumental in creating and establishing the ALIV brand and marketing in the role of Chief Aliv Champion, has stepped down from his role according to ALIV officials Wednesday.

In a statement released to the press yesterday morning, ALIV thanked Ingle publicly for his contribution to the company over the last two years and introduced the promotions of Gravette Brown and Patrice Thompson to Chief Aliv Commercial Officer and General Manager for New Providence respectively, with immediate effect.

“Gravette and Patrice’s new roles are a key part of ALIV’s senior leadership team reporting to Chief ALIV Officer, Damian Blackburn.

“I hope you will join me in congratulating Gravette and Patrice in their new roles and I commend both of them on their outstanding performances so far at ALIV. I wish them the best of luck in their new roles. It is very sad for us to say goodbye to Johnny Ingle who has given his heart and soul to building this brand, but it is a testament to the strength of our senior team to be able to evolve our leadership by promoting both Gravette and Patrice to lead this next phase of our journey.”

Gravette will have overall responsibility for development and delivery of ALIV’s customer initiatives roadmap.  This includes all products, pricing, promotions, brand and business development (including partnerships and innovative solutions for consumers) and development and implementation of our marketing and communication plans.

Patrice will be responsible for customer facing operations in the island as well as overall Aliv experience and will focus on optimizing customer and employee experience, driving high performance results within a fast-paced and dynamic environment.   Additionally, she will drive sales teams to achieve targeted success; maintain the overall health and performance of retail stores; manage and lead dynamic sales strategies; develop and implement sales tools/initiatives; develop community partnerships; among many other strategic responsibilities.
