Patrick Scheffer

Intern Communications

When it comes to creating value and providing innovative solutions for people living at the base of the pyramid, access to information, a vivid experience exchange and relationship building between policymakers, businesses, academics and customers seem crucial to me. This is what iBAN seeks to achieve.

Before joining iBAN, he gained professional experience at the German-Peruvian Chamber of Commerce in the area of foreign trade, where his tasks included market studies, bilateral business development and communication. He has also been working at Malteser Assistance as a multilingual student employee, connecting patients, physicians and insurances in medical cases around the globe.
