Ventuz welcomes Andres Hildebrandt as Head of Marketing

With his employment, the company strengthens its team with an accomplished marketing specialist from the 3D industry. 

Hamburg, Germany, Oct. 20, 2021 Ventuz Technology AG, a leading developer of software solutions for sophisticated real-time 3D graphics, announces that Andres Hildebrandt will be the visionary leading the company’s future global marketing activities. 

Hildebrandt, who played a key role in the international marketing of 3D software manufacturer Maxon Computer (Cinema 4D, Red Giant and Redshift) for 10 years, brings with him 20 years of experience in the 3D industry, including the marketing of editing and 3D solutions from internationally renowned companies such as Avid, Softimage and Autodesk. He is well connected throughout the CG industry at all levels, maintaining relationships with leading artists, studios, and manufacturers around the world. 

“We are delighted to have found a great new marketing lead in Andres Hildebrandt, who brings not only the technical expertise we were looking for but also, significant industry knowledge to take Ventuz marketing to a new level,” said Ralf Stanke, CEO of Ventuz. “It was important to us to find someone who really understands our products and our customers’ needs at the same time and can tailor our activities accordingly. This is an important step to consolidate and expand our position in the fast-evolving market for real-time 3D applications.” 

Hildebrandt previously held various positions at Maxon, most recently as vice director of marketing, where he worked on the realignment of the company’s marketing efforts necessitated by the acquisition of Redshift and Red Giant.  

“I’m proud that during my time at Maxon I was able to help take a fantastic and highly intuitive 3D product from a hidden champion to one of the leading applications in the CG industry, and then to help shape the communications of bringing three well-known brands together under one roof,” Hildebrandt said. “I am very much looking forward to bringing my experience to Ventuz and helping the products get the attention they deserve. At Ventuz, I have the backing of a very talented team that is enthusiastic about developing exceptionally powerful and equally intuitive software, and I want the world to hear more about that in the future. There’s a lot of work ahead of us, because Ventuz is a hidden champion too, but there’s also an ever-growing market potential to tap into and we’ll be doing that together from now on.” 

While Hildebrandt originally comes from the field of digital film production with a focus on 3D animation, he got into marketing hardware and software solutions for the CG industry back in the early 2000s and has witnessed and shaped the steady growth of this industry ever since.
