Auto Clubs are now a trend in the automotive industry. As you cruise the streets of any country on weekends you must stumble upon a certain club going for a ride.
However, certain clubs really strike you when you see them driving by and some clubs are even older than most of us on the roads, the Porsche Club of Lebanon is a club that combines both heritage being one of the oldest Auto clubs founded in Lebanon and probably the region and also a striking club with the variety of cars that you see in a cruise from classcs to modern and much more.
This wouldn’t have been possible without the commitee and board that works closely with the president and members of the Porsche Club Lebanon.
This is why, we’ve decided to go up close and personal with the President of Porsche Club Lebanon ” Jean Pierre Kebbe” in our meet the president section to better understand the motivation, objectives and future goals of this amazing club.
Jean Pierre Kebbe; President Porsche Club Lebanon for this iteration, you took over PCL for more than 2 years to date, what can you tell us about the changes, upgrades and the New Porsche Club Lebanon?
Having been president of Porsche Club Lebanon for nearly two years, what I am proud of the most is having brought the club members closer together. We are now one big family and we are enjoying our cars and each others’ company more than ever. The changes were many but mainly the club has become much more organized and way much more recognized as one of the best and most active clubs in Lebanon.
What are the new objectives and what were the achievements of PCL under your presidency?
There will always be new objectives and they will mainly be acquiring more members, and engaging in more social work. Giving back to society is always our target.
As for the achievements of Porsche Club Lebanon throughout those two years are mainly:
Better quality events, more frequent events (24 per year), upgraded the member notifications, developed an app for the club, acquired more sponsors, engaged in much more charity and social work as well as planned for 4 trips for members to participate inn Porsche driving schools both on track and on snow and ice and finally keeping the traditional yearly events going (Yearly BBQ, Iftar, End of year dinner)
What was the role of the president in those achievements and fulfilling those objectives and who was there to support you?
Honestly in the current committee it was never about the president. The six of us are one tream and one hand and I am thankful for having had the opportunity to work and enjoy with such amazing friends.
What’s coming next for the Porsche Club Lebanon in the coming years?
The club always has been and always will be about its members. The members are what matters and I will always do my best as long as am I here to plan for and execute what keeps them together and make them happy and proud to be Porsche Club Lebanon members.
