KEVIN PORTMANN

Director of Finance

Kevin sits on the finance committee for Seeds of Africa Foundation. His interest in financial markets was fostered during two six-month internships at General Electric in London and Goldman Sachs in New York City.

Originally from France, Kevin spent his childhood, primary and secondary education in the surroundings of Evian, a small town of the French Alps on the shore of Lake Geneva. In 2007 he moved to the United States to finish up his Bachelor Degree at Northeastern University, and now works as a financial analyst on Wall Street.

Kevin believes that education is the backbone of a more prosperous and better-educated world, giving kids future, hopes, and opportunities. In 2010 Kevin contributed to supporting Seeds of Africa’s cause through a fundraiser and the accomplishment of the Montreal Marathon. Kevin’s interests are skiing, playing soccer, playing table tennis, traveling, and reading the Economist. “See opportunities in every difficulty rather than difficulties in every opportunities” W.
