A Generation Change To Reinvent The Business
For a successful generation change, people and machinery are not the only things required to fill the shoes of the founder of the company. The vision of the founder of the company is essential to be translated to the upcoming generation who have to take on the business on their shoulders, which is not only limited to inheriting the business, but they have to reinvent and reshape it to have it stretch its wings to other countries. The young corporate leader must carry out the original goal and develop and expand the founder’s entrepreneurial dream. To accomplish so, he must transform himself into a visionary, a pragmatic dreamer. When Zahalka embarked on his journey to join his father’s business, he had a clear vision of what he had to do with the business and how he had to reinvent their family business.
With the vision to reinvent the business, Zahalka pushed the envelope, and in 2021 he expanded the once-small aluminum factory to an extensive and international company when he launched Urban C’s operations in Dubai. He entered the Dubai market with a zealous administration staff. Urban C maintains two locations under Zahalka’s supervision, resulting in a one-stop curtain wall solution for consumers.
Later in 2022, With the ambition of reinventing the business, Zahalka moved his focus and founded Urban C Real Estate Company, where he began working on real estate projects such as building and revamping old buildings. His firm has grown to Haifa, Kafr Qara, and Tel Aviv by December 2022. Furthermore, as technology advances, Zahalka invests in new firms to foster technical developments in Israel, further reshaping the business to make it gain a broader international presence.
Exploring The Honey
At the very young age of 20, Zahalka has given the best of his efforts to make the family business reach new heights. As a second-generation leader in the business, his passion for exploring his childhood fascination with the use of honey led him to establish Tiberius Honey Spoon in his hometown of Kfar Kara. The idea that lay behind the latest inception of the honey factory came when he visited Turkey, which ignited the spark to explore honey until he discovered a recipe for making honey foundation for various drinks and delicacies.
