His family has presented the “Rivkin Award” at the United States Department of State since 1968 as a way to honor intellectual courage and constructive dissent in the American Foreign Service. The award was created in part with the help of Charles Rivkin’s godfather, Hubert H. Humphrey, after the elder Rivkin’s death at 47, in 1967.
Rivkin assumed the role of Ambassador in August 2009. Ambassador Rivkin’s service in France came at one of the bilateral relationship’s strongest moments in recent history. To honor the legacy of Franco-American friendship and to commemorate the 68th anniversary of the Allied invasion of mainland Europe during World War II, Rivkin took part in a mass parachute jump over the coast of Normandy on June 3, 2012. An estimated crowd of 25,000 watched Rivkin land in a field near Sainte-Mère-Église amidst heavy winds, as he became the first US Ambassador to France to jump from a plane in honor of the troops who fought on D-Day. In support of the U.S. Navy, Rivkin became the first US Ambassador to take off and land on a Navy aircraft carrier in an F-18 Super Hornet when he participated in a training exercise with naval aviators on the USS Eisenhower in March 2013.
According to the Department of State Office of Inspector General’s report in May 2012, Rivkin placed new emphasis on support for US exports of goods and services into France. The report called Rivkin a “dynamic and visionary noncareer Ambassador”, and credited him with expanding the U.S. Embassy’s public diplomacy activities, particularly through his use of social media and his appearances on French national television. Rivkin introduced social media to Embassy Paris, establishing its first ever Facebook and Twitter accounts.
