André has spent over a decade building brands that matter across the technology, advertising, automotive and public sectors. Currently, André is Partnership Lead at the Mercedes-Benz EQ Formula E Team - an all-electric street racing team and catalyst for sustainable transportation and more livable cities. André’s commitment to building strategic partnerships that deliver positive social and commercial impact has run through his previous roles at Wolff Olins, Microsoft and HyperloopTT.
Born in London, André built Enfuse Youth, a career development social enterprise dedicated to building intrapreneurial careers paths for young people through brand partnerships. His work led to an invitation from the Damilola Taylor Trust to build the Spirit of London Awards with the support of the Mayor of London and 10 Downing Street. His commitment to social impact has seen him serve on the Channel 4 Education Advisory Board and more recently the Safer London Board of Trustees.
Whilst studying for his MBA at Imperial College Business School, André explored the topic of future cities whilst visiting Shanghai, New York, Bogotá, Mexico City. This inspired him to launch the Building Future Cities Podcast - to interview how entrepreneurs and creative leaders are building better future cities. In 2019, André was profiled in The Drum’s Future 50, recognising the world’s most exciting up-and-coming brand marketers. In the same year, André attended the China-UK Symposium on Smart Cities in China, as a Royal Academy of Engineering UK delegate.
