“My experience in competitive intelligence and strategy provided a very special opportunity to become closely engaged with senior executives at major global pharmaceutical companies,” said Cliff. “I’ve been extremely lucky to learn from great mentors in corporate professional roles and in my industry, as well as in SCIP and the competitive intelligence profession. I believe the greatest contribution that one can make is to “pay it forward” to others who have a thirst for knowledge and an unquenchable natural curiosity, and who are motivated to invent new ways to promote the art and science of decision-support.”
“I’ve been given wonderful opportunities to serve as an intelligence practitioner, consultant, instructor, and volunteer leader,” he added. “Along the way I’ve had the chance to develop and coach several hundred remarkably talented individuals, many who have gone on to successful careers and achieved far greater accomplishments than I could ever have imagined. I share this award with my mentors, co-workers, colleagues and all the friends I’ve been privileged to meet and I continue to learn from. I will be forever grateful to SCIP and the intelligence community for this high honor.”
Nan Bulger, Executive Director of SCIP, congratulates Mr. Kalb on receiving the Meritorious award. “Cliff has been instrumental in the development of competitive intelligence as a core competency and skill in industry. He has been a dedicated SCIP member and Fellow for many years. Cliff currently leads the Fellows group where he is responsible for orchestrating our Fellows FAQs and the Fellows at the Fireside effort. We are grateful for his dedicated and long term efforts on behalf of the intelligence profession and the SCIP organization.”
