Sven has worked in corporate finance and banking for 30 years in the UK, the US and in Germany. He was a trustee of the AAT from 2007 to 2014 and re-joined in early 2017. Sven supports the AAT as he was diagnosed with a related disease to AA, PNH, and was successfully treated at St George’s Hospital, London, by Professors Ted Gordon-Smith, Judith Marsh and their colleagues in 2001.

Sven has witnessed the AAT able to make a significant contribution to fighting the disease by funding research as well as easing the anxieties, concerns and worries of patients as they cope with the illness. He is committed to supporting the AAT to allow it to intensify its activities significantly by ensuring it has the structure to grow and to enhance its fund-raising capabilities.
