Kevin Hinds’ rise to leadership positions came from his desire to give back to Barbados. This aspiration has served him well and one that he hopes to inspire in others.
The 35-year-old husband and manager for business performance product and strategy implementation at the CIBC First Caribbean International Bank (FCIB), is also national president of Junior Chamber International (JCI) West Indies.
Hinds said that when he joined the local youth organisation’s chapter in 2008, under the persuasion of his mentor, JCI Senator Paul Ashby, becoming the national president was not something on his agenda. He now describes it as one of his proudest accomplishments.
As part of his duties, Hinds, along with six delegates from the Caribbean, attended the JCI 2015 World Congress, which was held in Kanazawa, Japan.
