My name is Alexander Schwedeler, 1963. I have worked in finance for the last 20 years, first with Deutsche Bank, then in my own start-up company, and then 15 years for Triodos Bank, Netherlands, an ethical and green/sustainable bank, which was founded in 1980. Between 1999 and 2006 I worked as Fund Manager for a new private equity fund, which invested in organic food and renewable energy companies. During that time I represented the fund's investments at the board of many small and medium-sized companies and participated in their strategic decision making.
In 2009, as Co-Managing Director, I started, together with my new team, the German Branch of Triodos Bank, and grew it up to 40 people and a balance sheet of 250m. I have financed many green, ethical and inspiring initiatives and businesses, including schools and health care institutions.
During that time I designed and participated in the start of the Triodos Organic Growth Fund, a evergreen private equity fund for businesses in the sustainable area.
Between 2010 and 2012 I attended the first masterclass of Otto Scharmer’s TheoryU with 70 people from around the world.
Since 2014 I am working as Leadership Consultant, being a member of IMO, for impulse work, team building, organisational development, and conflict solving.
In my free time I like to read books about leadership, management, self-development, and contemporary history and economics. I play a little Jazz on the piano and like to improvise. I live with my wife in Stuttgart. We have three young adults.
