Alongside his role

as General Manager, Corporate Affairs for James Finlay Kenya ("JFK"), Sammy Kirui is a leading advocate for positive change in his community. As Secretary of the JFK-funded Finlays Charitable Trust, Sammy has been involved in implementing a range of unique and practical approaches to advancing educational opportunities and community development, as well as promoting environmental conservation in Kenya. Over the past eight years, over 60 community projects have been implemented and more than 10,000 trees have been planted annually by the Trust.

Sammy's tireless efforts have recently been recognised with state honours. At an awards ceremony held in Mombasa in October, the President of Kenya, Mr Uhuru Kenyatta, presented Sammy with the prestigious Head of State Commendation – a civilian medal that recognises individuals for making an outstanding contribution to the development of the country. Sammy was one of 210 "mashujaa" – heroes and heroines – selected for national recognition and one of two individuals nominated by Bomet County, where Finlays operates.
