Since the late 1970s, outgoing Presidents of FICPI have, by tradition, been elected as Presidents of Honour by the Executive Committee.

Managing FICPI for a period of 3-year term of office is a huge committment, and FICPI is grateful to all of them for their time and service. Each of them left their mark on FICPI, reflecting their unique skills and vision.
