Sonect continues to move at full speed despite COVID-19 and has strengthened the management team for its international expansion.

“In the last few years, I had the impression that the large digitalization processes forget about heavy cash users and those who don’t have credit cards. Anybody typically has a smartphone today, road builders in LATAM as well as miners in Africa or farm workers in Asia to name a few, so to still give people access to financial services via Sonect is a great idea.”
Steivan Pitsch has joined Sonect as Head of Marketing. Prior to Sonect, Steivan has worked in management consulting throughout Europe for over 10 years before working for various advertising and branding agencies, developing numerous international brands during the last 5 years.
The company based in Zurich was founded in 2016 and employs approximately 30 people, Sonect provides an international platform that makes financial services easily accessible from anywhere. With its app, Sonect enables cash withdrawals directly at any point of sale. With Sonect, every store becomes a virtual ATM and cash withdrawals become simpler, faster and more cost-effective. With over 2,300 points of sale, Sonect already operates the largest ATM network in Switzerland.
