2019 FEM Americas EMMAs Global Mobility Rising Star of the Year announced!

Winner: Vincent Hennequin

Forum for Expatriate Management (FEM) Americas EMMAs (Expatriate Management & Mobility Awards) 2019

On Thursday May 23, 2019 the winner of this year’s Global Mobility Rising Star of the Year award was announced at a glittering gala dinner at the Marriott City Center, Dallas TX.

The FEM EMMAs are the premier awards for the global mobility and International HR industry and on Thursday night, following a highly successful two-day Summit, key figures, leaders and companies gathered to celebrate the brightest and best in the Americas region.

Claire Tennant-Scull, Global Director of Content & Marketing at FEM said:

“The EMMAs are the premier Awards ceremony for Global Mobility in the Americas and across the globe, with the greatest breadth of categories for both corporate professionals and service providers.

This year more than ever too, I think we can claim that our Summit and Awards truly reflect global mobility right across the Americas, as we have seen a huge increase in entries from all parts of North America as well as Latin America.

EMMAs entries are rigorously judged by a team of fiercely impartial, highly experienced, senior figures in the industry, who are drawn from a range of disciplines across the Americas region and who give up their own free time to carry out a very thorough and demanding process. So, these awards carry tremendous kudos. It’s so important to receive recognition among your peers for innovation and hard work and so I think the winners and all those on the Shortlist should feel extremely proud.

This year too, we have received entries from individuals and companies who have never taken part in the EMMAs before, so it’s invigorating to have so many new faces at the awards and to see how the industry is developing and bringing on new talent. I think the results were very interesting, and reflective of the change that is occurring across the industry. We were so pleased to receive such good feedback on many of the entries from the judges.”

This year the FEM EMMAs, saw entries across 22 categories, and the independent judging panel made up of industry experts remarked on the high standard of the entries.

Judged against a strict set of criteria, the competition for this award was fierce.

The judges commented on Vincent Hennequin entry:

FEM is very grateful to our panel of esteemed judges for all their hard work and careful consideration of every entry.
