Mr. Hildenbrand has more than 40 years of professional experience in the Lufthansa Group. During this time, he acquired profound international knowledge in various positions and areas on four continents and was responsible for large business units with up to 4,000 employees. As managing
Director of an Indian company he not only experienced India as a country and working in the Indian market scenario, but also dealing with its special circumstances. Due to his many years of responsibility in the management of complex operational units such as the major German airports in Frankfurt and Leipzig, it is important to him not only to develop solutions in theory, but also to make the implementation possible in the best possible way.

Since 2017 Mr. Hildenbrand has been a Senior Expert at WB, contributing his diverse experience to WB’s projects in crisis management and prevention. He advises companies, organizations and public institutions on how to deal with unplanned events and threats (such as natural disasters, terrorism, cybercrime, pandemics) and the resulting risks for their operative businesses as well as for their employees, customers and business partners. He supports the development and practical application of crisis management strategies for our clients. Of particular importance to him is good management of sustainable changes for long-term effects.

“In my professional life I have had the good fortune to get to know but also to appreciate a large number of countries and their people and cultures. The responsibility in management at the Frankfurt Airport as well as the professional experience in India and Pakistan were among the greatest challenges. Here I have learned to manage acute and complex crises and also to develop preventive measures and systems.”
