On June 21st, BIO’s CEO, Luuk Zonneveld, joined the representatives of the King Baudouin Foundation in Democratic Republic of Congo to award the biannual « Prize for Corporate Governance » to the Congolese entrepreneur Philemon Kivuvu Musul, owner of CAMALCO Sprl.

The Prize, which concedes a financial support of € 25,000, is awarded every two years to a woman or a man, who manages her or his company in an exceptional way. With this Prize, the founders of the Corporate Governance Fund wish to project a positive image of a particular company in the DR Congo that contributes to the economic development of the country for the benefit of the local population. BIO became a partner in the Corporate Governance Fund last November 2013.

CAMALCO Sprl is a company specialising in extracting and processing limestone. The company’s CEO, Philémon Kivuvu Musul, has successfully achieved progressive growth, respects commitments to his employees and takes into consideration the impact of his company on the local community.

On October 23rd 2014, BIO, in close collaboration with the King Baudouin Foundation, will host a seminar in Brussels to explore challenges and opportunities for SME development in developing countries. Philémon Kivuvu Musul will join the panel as an experienced and successful entrepreneur.
