Kevin Lamour was born in France on 15 September 1980.

A football fan for as long as he can remember but, by his own admission, not the most gifted of players, Kevin spent his childhood and teenage years in his native Brittany supporting his Stade Plabennecois and then FC Gouesnou team-mates from the bench as a model substitute and dedicated water carrier. Realising very early on that his future did not lie on the pitch, he took the wise decision to devote himself to his studies. With a law degree, a diploma from the Grenoble Institute of Political Studies, a master’s in political and social communication from the Sorbonne and a master’s in the study of comparative politics from Sciences Po Paris under his belt, he joined UEFA in 2007 within the president’s office.

Since then, he has represented UEFA on FIFA’s Israel-Palestine Monitoring Committee, taken part in the UEFA Captains of Change programme (designed to promote diversity at management level in European football) and volunteered for the UEFA Foundation for Children. Now Deputy General Secretary, he joined the UEFA Foundation for Children board of trustees on 22 November 2017
