Jean-Marie Painvin
Founder and CEO, JMC Investment

Prior to establishing JMC Investment in 2012, Jean-Marie Painvin was CEO and Chairman of the Board of Deutsch Group, the world leader in high-performance connectors in a wide range of sectors including civil and military aviation, transport and offshore drilling.

Jean-Marie was instrumental in growing Deutsch into the world-class and global business that it is today. He integrated three largely autonomous companies into one worldwide company, expanding overseas and acquiring a blue chip client base, as well as successfully navigating through the recent period of unprecedented economic turmoil. In April 2012, nearly six years after the successful sale of the Deutsch Group to Wendel, Deutsch was sold for $2.1 billion to TE Connectivity.

Jean-Marie is a graduate of Rice University, with a Master's in Mechanical Engineering. He serves as a director on various boards, including Parrot SA, global leader in mobile voice technology, and High Convictions, a Banque de Neuflize fund.

Jean-Marie lives in New York City with his wife Carlota and their 6 children. He is also an avid sportsman. He is a member of Piping Rock Golf and Country Club in New York and has chaired Golf du Medoc in France for seven years.
