Having worked as a social entrepreneur and IB consultant in Asia for more than eight years, I am now excited to leverage my knowledge and experience with iBAN on a global level collaborating with our partners and stakeholders.

Markus Dietrich is Director Policy at the Inclusive Business Action Network (iBAN) since 2017. He supports companies to scale up their inclusive business (IB) models and policymakers in the development of enabling environments.

With a background in the private sector, Markus moved to the Philippines in 2008 and consulted with ADB, GIZ, World Bank and the private sector on renewable energy and inclusive business.

Markus is also a committed social entrepreneur who co-founded Hilltribe Organics in Thailand, which engages hill tribe communities in organic farming.

He holds a degree in Business Studies from CASS Business School and a master degree in International Community Economic Development from Southern New Hampshire University.
