By the age of 13, Domagoj Dukec had already decided on his career path. His father would regularly take the schoolboy to Pforzheim, where he presented his sketches to the university’s School of Design. The commitment he showed made a lasting impression and, as a young guest student, he was introduced to the basics of automotive design. After taking his school-leaving exams he officially registered at the School of Design and spent his entire vacation time as a trainee with various car manufacturers. After 13 years and various stints at renowned design studios in Barcelona, Paris and Sao Paolo, he has headed up the Exterior Design Team BMW Automobiles for three years. Since 2016 Domagoj Dukec is Vice President Design BMW M and BMW i.
