Curiosity and openness drive Markus Schmauder’s passion for consulting internationally active companies at LBBW. He did an apprenticeship at LBBW, followed by a university degree in business administation at Universität Hohenheim and Fachhochschule Nürtingen, paralleled with a working student activity. In 2000, he started a traineeship in LBBW’s corporate customer business in Böblingen and consulted many medium-sized companies in the region. Markus was always keen on working abroad and in 2010, he had the opportunity to head the Corporate Desk and Institutional Banking team at LBBW New York branch. Here, he accompanied the activities of German companies in the United States until 2015. Since 2015, he has been heading the Trade Finance team in Bavaria, Saxony and South/East Wuerttemberg.
„Every culture is different and living abroad changes your view onto the country. In Germany, securtiy and risk management is of major interest. In the United States, the opportunites are always of top priority. An open mind and curiosity opens up new approaches – an experience which enriches me personally every day”, says Markus Schmauder. In his leasure time, you can meet the father of two in Warmbronn, when they fly their self-made model aeroplanes or navigate the model boats through the lake there.
