Monaco’s Junior Chamber International (JCI) proudly announced that its long-time member Kevin Hin was elected 2018 JCI Executive Vice-President for Europe during the JCI World Congress 2017 in Amsterdam.
Since its establishment in 1963, none of the Monaco Junior Chamber of Commerce members has ever occupied such a position on an international level. This appointment places Mr Hin as Number Two on the JCI Executive Committee, just behind Brian Lim from JCI Philippines, World President of the organisation for 2018.
A polyglot and restless traveller, Mr Hin, has all the characteristics to fit this task. Born in London and raised in Monaco, the 38-year-old went to the exclusive FANB middle school and the Franciscans high school, a schooling that permitted him to learn French at an early age, and even the Monegasque language. He went back to England to obtain a Masters in International Finance from the London School of Economics.
Thanks to his multicultural background, Kevin is open-minded, passionate as a traveller and deeply attached to traditions. That’s why after finishing his studies, in 1989, he decided to settle back in Monaco to serve his beloved country.
Mr Hin works as Commercial Assistant for the Monegasque jeweller AMP Monaco and is in charge of APM’s commercial development in Germany, Austria, Central and Oriental Europe.
Since he entered JCI Monaco in 2003, Kevin Hin has dedicated his time and energy to the movement. He has been elected National President in 2010 and Senator for life after having organised, with his team, the JCI World Conference in Monaco. He has already represented Monaco on an international level by serving as JCI Vice-President for eight European countries in 2016.
The JCI counts 160.000 members in 120 countries and aims is to develop entrepreneurship and young leaders’ abilities to impact our societies positively.
As Executive President for JCI Europe, Mr Hin will be in charge of 30.000 members in 32 countries. He will also Preside at the European Conference that will take place in Riga in June 2018 and the President’s reunion in Zagreb in February 2018.
