Zack Hartwanger was born August 16, 1989 in Hermanus, located southeast of Cape Town, South Africa and currently lives in London, England. He studied business administration at the University of Cape Town.
After college, Zack worked for an Advertising agency in Cape Town. Every year there was a party called Synergy sponsored by one of the accounts he worked on. It was here that he was scouted and after a couple months of contemplating, quit hisjob and headed for Europe.
He currently works for Select Model Management (London – mother agent), Soul Artist Management (NYC), Why Not (Milan) and View Management (Barcelona). He has also worked for Abercrombie & Fitch and Ralph Lauren but considers working with Bruce Weber and Arnoldo Lucca the highlights of his career.
Other than London, he enjoys being in New York City. Zack says he has always had a passion for the built environment. Before getting scouted for modelling he graduated in construction management and quantity surveying, so, post modelling he plans to use that to get involved in green developments.
