Mr John J Studzinski, a member of the HSBC Group-Management Board and Chief Executive of HSBC’s Corporate, Investment Banking and Markets Division (CIBM), will tomorrow be addressing students who are currently taking part in the Young Enterprise and Students In Free Enterprise (SIFE) programmes. Both programmes are sponsored by HSBC. Mr Studzinski will be in Malta to address the Commonwealth Business Forum.

“The opportunity for students taking part in Young Enterprise and SIFE to meet with one of the most senior executives in the whole of the HSBC Group is a unique one which should not be missed. John has a wealth of knowledge and experience which he is willing to share with the business and social leaders of tomorrow. I am certain the students will have plenty of questions for what should be an interesting discussion,” said Young Enterprise Malta’s chairman, Josef Camilleri.

Apart from his senior position with HSBC, John Studzinksi is also chairman of Business Action on Homelessness, a unique “business- in-the-community” initiative that changes the perceptions companies have of homelessness and helps homeless people back into employment. He was also a founding member of the Passage Day Centre – one of the largest day care centres for the homeless in London. In 1996, Mr Studzinski also set up the Genesis Foundation, which he funds from his personal resources. This foundation supports young artists, playwrights and musicians by providing them with practical and financial support in the earliest stages of their careers.

In addition to his banking career and philanthropic work, Mr Studzinski is also a trustee of the Tate Gallery, London, the Sir John Soane Museum at Bowdoin College and of Human Rights Watch, New York. He has also received a number of prestigious awards including the Ambassadors Award, presented by the Prince of Wales in 2000. He was also appointed Knight of the Order of St Gregory and Knight Commander of the Order of Saint Sylvester by H H Pope John Paul II.
