History of FSK

In January 2015, the French Chamber Of Commerce started as Greg Schwebig’s initiative; a French businessman who had already set up his company in Kenya and desired to bring the French community in Kenya together.

In December 2015, Augustin Bonniol and Julien Banasuk joined the initiative. The French Embassy also supported the initiative by organising networking cocktails.

After forming an agreement with all local French-based institutions, the Business Club decided to get its registration in October 2016 as French Society in Kenya. Later on, in December 2016, the Executive Director joined the French Chamber of Commerce.

In april 2017, accreditation was given by CCI-FI France International, the network of  worldwide French Chambers, to become a French Chamber.

We became: French Chamber of Commerce Kenya.
