Speaker

Vincent Faber
CEO

A Geophysicist Engineer by background, graduated from the French Petroleum Institute near Paris, France, Vincent started his career in the oil business. At the age of 30, he gave a new orientation to his professional life and followed the humanitarian path, which ended up taking him to a countless number of countries, including some of the most dramatic war and conflict zones of the last decades. Vincent has occupied top executive positions with some of the world’s leading NGOs and international organizations, such as Médecins sans Frontières and International Aids Society. Thanks to his dual corporate and NGO background, Vincent strongly believes that fruitful synergies can be found between both worlds and that by joining forces, they can have a positive impact on individuals and communities.
