AGE 51 I TOKYO, JAPAN I FRANCE
Vincent Letourmy’s academic credentials include degrees in mathematics from Paris VI University, and from one of the leading French engineering schools, “Telecom Sud Paris,” with special emphasis on signals theory. Those studies propelled him to take different operational and management positions in THALES French international company—work that has, over the past two decades, stationed him in France, Italy, Malaysia, and currently Japan. He has also almost continuously maintained piano studies throughout his lifetime, since age 5, and earned a piano diploma from l’Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris while at university. As an amateur pianist, he’s won prizes at competitions in France, Austria, and Italy, and—as a result of friendships with Japanese pianists made during the 2011 Cliburn Amateur—he helped develop and organize a piano marathon in different cities across Japan for the last nine years. A frequent traveler, Vincent is fluent in four languages.
