Mr. Hildenbrand has gained over 40 years of professional experience in the Lufthansa Group. He acquired profound international knowledge in various positions and areas on four continents and managed large areas with up to 4,000 employees. As managing director of an Indian company, he experienced India and the working world there, but also the local authorities, administration and peculiarities. Due to his many years of responsibility in the management of complex operational units such as the important Frankfurt and Leipzig airports, it is important to him not only to work things out in theory, but to make the real 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 the field of crisis management and prevention. He advises companies, organizations and public institutions in dealing with unplanned events and threats (such as natural disasters, terrorism, cybercrime, pandemics) and the resulting risks for the operational business as well as for employees, customers and business partners. It supports the development and concrete application of crisis management strategies for our customers. In particular, good management of sustainable changes and long-term effects is of great importance.

"I have been very fortunate in my professional life to get to know and appreciate a variety of countries and their people and cultures. The responsibility in the management at Frankfurt Airport as well as the professional experiences in Pakistan and India were sometimes the greatest challenges. Here I learned to manage acute and complex crises and also to develop preventive measures and systems."
