Frédérique Constant Presents First Passion Awards

Swiss luxury watchmaker Frédérique Constant presented its first Live Your Passion awards in June in Switzerland. The two winners were Peter-Frans Pauwels, founder of TomTom, the first world supplier of GPS navigation solutions, and William Novick, who helped create the International Children’s Heart Foundation, which provides cardiological treatment to sick children worldwide. The awards were created by the watchmaker to “encourage achievements by passionate men and women who have been able to develop their ideas, moving quickly from an innovative concept to a fast-expanding company.” They were presented by Peter and Aletta Stas, chief executive officer and chief operations officer, respectively, of Frédérique Constant.
