Charlie Hilm

Charlie Hilm

Our company was the brain child of Mr Charlie Hilm, hence the name ‘Hilmarket’. The first office was started by him in Amsterdam in 1978. With his dynamic personality and reliable persona, it wasn’t long before Mr Hilm had captured a big chunk of the European market, catering to their need for high quality leather and textile outerwear. After a 28 year long tenure, Mr Hilm decided to retire from Hilmarket and pursue his passion for a social cause in the field of education. He started the NGO ‘Flying Teachers’ which is primarily helping rebuild schools in disaster areas of Burma.

As Hilmarket grew under Mr Hilm, there was a need to open more offices worldwide. Thus, in 1984, Hilmarket India was founded by Mr Deepak Vakharia, another well known name in the apparel world. As a designer by education, entrepreneur by profession and philatelist by passion, Mr Vakharia is a man of many skills that took Hilmarket to heights much beyond what was imagined. After having run the company successfully for 27 years, he recently decided to take a backseat from apparel and dedicate more time to the world of stamps, where he is yet again, an expert.
