Dr. Bob Pierce Humanitarian Award
Kevin Jenkins is the President and CEO of World Vision International. During his time as president, Kevin has transformed how World Vision works internationally through his inspired and faithful leadership, including the launch of Our Promise 2030, our new global strategy. A proud Canadian, Kevin had a remarkable 25-year career as one of Canada’s leading business leaders, including as CEO of major companies like Canadian Airlines. He served on the Board of World Vision Canada until stepping into the role of international president in 2009. In his role, he has engaged at the highest level with leaders in humanitarian organisations, government, and United Nations, and providing thought leadership to some of the most significant issues affecting our sector. He also successfully led the World Vision Partnership through an exciting time of transformational change—all while ensure we stayed focused on our mission, vision and Christian identity. As Kevin steps down from his role, he is leaving a remarkable legacy for our organisation, and we are honoured to recognise him for his years of faithful service.
