Born in Portugal and raised in Switzerland Andreia realized early on that two cultures were not enough for her. As part of her studies in International Management at the Zurich University of Applied Sciences, Andreia spent a part of her education and internship experience in Israel and Thailand. She also volunteered in a refugee camp in Idomeni at the Greek-Macedonian border.
After several engagements in international consulting Andreia completed her knowledge with an MBA-degree from the University of St. Gallen and ESADE Barcelona – a strong thrust for her career towards strategy and leadership. She was responsible for the global product management of a medtech start-up company until she founded her own sustainable business. In addition, she helped to build and establish a Swiss foundation as Managing Director.
With her own consulting firm SEABRAND she advises and coaches companies worldwide in five languages in topics such as strategy, leadership and marketing. She is also an advisory board member and lecturer at several business schools.
As a mother of an infant daughter, Andreia does not miss her time as a frequent flyer. She does, however, still enjoy travelling very much. Her motto: Know more countries than she counts years of age.
