Oscar Gibbons

President

Communications & Partnership manager

Oscar’s background is at least atypical. Following an apprenticeship as a carpenter in a dual system, he continued his academic career with a professional maturity that allowed him to discover more about the tertiary sector. This is why he decided to study for a Bachelor’s degree in International Business Management at Geneva’s HEG. In order to enter this school, he worked in a fiduciary where he managed the accounts of several clients. To this day, he works in the pharmaceutical industry with experience in catering and service. This young entrepreneur loves to get involved in as many projects as possible in order to discover new things and constantly develop his knowledge. Oscar is a persevering, motivated and optimistic person.

Philippe Torres

Vice President

Events manager

Following a Bachelor’s degree in International Business Management at the HEG-Geneva, his desire to change air and help others took Philippe to South East Asia, where he carried out a volunteer mission in the field of education. Upon his return, he worked in the operations sector for a Swiss start-up and also assisted the IT and logistics teams at Pictet Bank. With a thirst for learning and a need for renewal, Philippe finally decided to start a new adventure by combining his studies with his passion, by pursuing a Master’s degree in International Football Business. He now works for UEFA in the “Event Transport” department.

Jonathan Dos Reis

Events manager

After completing his Master’s degree in Economics in Geneva and Belgium, Jonathan worked in several fields (banking, international organizations) before becoming a financial planner with Swisslife Select.
