AVPN chief of staff Patsian Low moves to Visa

She takes on the role as head of inclusive impact and sustainability at the credit card firm.

Patsian Low has moved on from Asian Venture Philanthropy Network (AVPN) after more than four and a half years to join financial services brand Visa.

Low was chief of staff and policy director at the Singapore-headquartered non-profit, and moves to Visa as vice president, inclusive impact and sustainability for Asia Pacific.

She brings 25 years of experience in the private and civic sectors, working in social finance, social entrepreneurship, impact philanthropy and non-profit leadership, to the role.

On LinkedIn, Low said she was excited to be joining a company producing programmes such as Visa Eco Benefits, which claims to give its credit cards user benefits if they make sustainable shopping choices.

Prior to AVPN, Patsian was head of the DBS Foundation and corporate social responsibility for Singapore’s DBS Bank, leading their work in championing social entrepreneurship.

Over her career, she has worked as director of philanthropy at Singapore’s National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre (NVPC), at Johnson & Johnson on the pharmaceuticals firm’s community impact strategy, and Tri-Sector Associates as director of project advisory.
