Jean-Marie Painvin

Founder

As a previous president of Golf Du Medoc in France for 7 years, and a member of Piping Rock Golf Club in New York, he saw a lack of support, structure and guidance for young golfing professionals across the globe. His involvement with a non-profit organization ‘Summer Search’ allowed him to see the positive impact a structured mentoring program can have on younger generations.

As an experienced CEO and successful businessman, he understood the importance of being surrounded by people with a positive influence and building relationships with those who offered expertise in different areas, often acting as mentors during difficult times.  

Combining these experiences led to the creation of JMC Sport.
