The son of refugees from the Vietnam War, Kevin Vuong is dedicated to serving Canada for welcoming his parents, when other countries were closing their borders to people in need. He is VP and COO at Delphic Research Group, combining cutting edge technology with research-driven strategies to provide customized monitoring and intelligence services to elevate government affairs.
As a rapid-response to the masks shortage and economic hardships brought by COVID-19, Kevin co-founded TakeCare Supply with Larry Lau, which rapidly developed Canada’s first evidence-based reusable mask. Over 750,000 masks have been sold across North America, creating jobs for nearly 200 Canadians during the pandemic and supporting Canada’s vital manufacturing sector. Today, TakeCare masks can be found worn by mayors, government ministers, and Canada’s Ambassadors to the UN and WTO and other leaders.
Most recently, Kevin was appointed Canada’s NATO Young Leader. 14 Young Leaders were selected from across the 30-member Alliance to advise Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg on NATO 2030 and the future of the Alliance.
For his service and impact, Kevin has been named/appointed:
– A Medallist of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as HM The Queen’s Young Leader for Canada in 2017;
– Canada’s Top 30 Under 30 in 2016;
– Canada’s Top Under 30 Pan-Asian Leader in 2014; and
– Fellow of The Aspen Institute, CivicAction, and The Royal Commonwealth Society.
Kevin is also a contributor on NEWSTALK 1010, proudly serves in the Royal Canadian Navy at Her Majesty’s Canadian Ship YORK, and teaches Financial Markets at Western University. His research has examined artificial intelligence and bias, the future of work and what it means for Canada and the nation’s prosperity in the age of disruption. A civic leader, Kevin chairs the Mencius Foundation, and serves on the board of the NATO Association of Canada, Together We Stand Foundation, and the Council of Presidents at Western.
