Patrick Kessler has been elected for president of the VSV ASVAD in 2008. The association has meanwhile 300 members (B2C and B2B), which represent about 60 % of the Swiss B2C online trading. Members such as Nespresso, Zalando but also many SMEs realise more than 4 billion CHF turnover online, they distribute 40 million parcels and receive 10 Mio return parcels a year (which is in total around 30 % of the total parcel volume of Swiss Post).
From 2000 – 2007 he was responsible as a CFO and CEO for Quelle Versand in Switzerland and knows the complexity behind the “window” online-shop. Besides his main activity within VSV ASVAD he is president of a family compensation fund office, vice president of an OASI (old age social insurance) compensation fund office and member of the parliament in the canton of Appenzell Ausserrhoden AR.
Patrick has a very strong network in the online-merchants markets of CH, D and AT and likes to provoke with radical digital visions.
