CV: Born in Buenos Aires in 1971, Juan Hildebrand took his first steps into the professional world as a carpenter in the fields of interior construction and trade fair and exhibition design for international brands. He left Argentina with two suitcases at the age of 30 in order to find his second home in Germany. And to find his new role in retail design: since 2006, he has been part of the Schwitzke & Partner team, providing support and advice throughout the entire creative process of store and shopping centre design. After more than ten years as a head of department at our Düsseldorf headquarters, he moved to our Dubai branch at the start of 2017 where he has since been responsible for the design department over there. The Argentinean by birth is unquestionably an expert when it comes to intercultural understanding and a passionate designer specialising in product and retail design.
