Thomas Hugonnier joined SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL’s head office in late 2002 as a desk assistant, after completing a Master’s degree in humanitarian action at Aix-en-Provence University. He then worked on various SOLIDARITÉS missions in Iraq, the Ivory Coast and D.R. Congo, before eventually taking on the role of Head of Mission in Afghanistan between 2006 and 2008.
Thomas then worked with other organizations in Afghanistan (MADERA NGO, The United Nations and ECHO).
These diverse experiences have given me an alternative perspective on SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL’s work – as a partner, then as a backer – and to appreciate consistency and efficacy.
When he returned to France in 2011, Thomas focused on creating a new activity involving both the social and environmental sectors for ENVIE, a professional integration company in the Rhône-Alpes region. He then joined HANDICAP INTERNATIONAL’s head office in 2013, where he is currently Middle-East Operations Director.
Thomas was elected to the Board at the Annual General Meeting on 18 June 2011.
