Since Tri Vac had no power to directly remove the new CEO from his position, they decided to deny him support by not acquainting him with the working of the organization. He was not able to effectively take up the new responsibility because he was completely green about the activities of the organization. The only assistance he was given by his colleagues was to deliver wrong reports that would generally prove to the people that he was not the right candidate for the job. This is a clear indication of what happens in organizations where a foreigner is brought in to take up the responsibility. No matter the circumstances that led to their appointment, if the rest of the managers and employees did not approve of his appointment, he may never succeed. Being an effective leader is not only determined by the credentials of the candidate but mainly by the support that they receive from their colleagues. A leader may not be experienced much, but when they are given the necessary support, they will be able to perform well.
A lot of pressure was mounted on him to give up the position, but he was not willing to. He instead yearned to be given the necessary support so that he could perform his responsibilities effectively. He was subsequently demoted by the board of directors and later on forced out of the position. This happened after the efforts of the board of directors to have him resign out of his position failed. Even though the European conglomerate had the power to appoint him to be the CEO, they did not have the authority to retain him in the position. The decision of retaining him was based on his performance and the decisions that would be reached by the board of directors. For the board of directors to fire him from his position, they had to identify a valid reason. The most valid reason was to prove to the new owners of Rohtech that the person they chose for the position was not performing. This was strategically planned, and within a short period, he had no reason to remain but to quit his position.
