Patrick Hamer '06

I grew up in Cupertino, California. I entered Lehigh in the College of Arts & Sciences and started early on the dual major in History and Economics. In addition, I took advantage of the opportunity to participate in the Lehigh in New York (Summer of '03) and Lehigh in Belgium (Summer of '04) under the direction of History faculty. Both were significant life experiences. I spent my summer between Junior and Senior Year as an intern in New York City for Deutsche Bank. The History Department taught me to effective writing skills and helped me develop patience to concentrate over a longer period of time on bigger picture trends and projects. It provided me with a foundation for strategic thinking, and taught me to compete efficiently and balance demands on time and focus.

My first job after graduation was at Deutsche Bank securities, then five years at Goldman Sachs, before joining Bank of America Merrill Lynch in my current job as a Vice President in Investment Banking - Equity Capital Markets.

In 2021 I moved to ChargePoint, a New York Stock Exchange listed EV Charging Technology leader, where I oversee Investor relations and capital markets responsibilities. The company is based in Campbell, but I work remotely from Chatham, where I live with my wife and two young children.
