André Ferreira dos Santos

André Ferreira dos Santos

Technical director

André Santos has a master’s degree in Business Sciences from the Instituto Superior de Economia e Gestão. He started his journey at age 20, when he launched his first business. For 3 years, his mission was to help students achieve better school results. This adventure made him learn a lot in an accelerated way, and for this reason he decided to combine all the knowledge that he has assimilated over the last years with one of his great passions, open water swimming, thus creating SwimTogether – a tour operator that gives the opportunity for ordinary swimmers to live authentic swimming experiences. Unsatisfied by nature, he has always dedicated his life to sport and adventure. In your head there are no limits, living each day like a real explorer.
