Bio
As the director of ESG for Wellington’s private investments business, Hillary spearheads the evaluation of deals and ongoing private investments from an environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) perspective. This is a nascent but growing area of focus among private companies.

Hillary leads Wellington’s effort to assess ESG factors pre- and post-deal that can have a material impact on the long-term success of portfolio companies — for example, factors related to climate change, supply-chain management, and executive compensation. She leverages her extensive ESG experience and Wellington’s robust firmwide ESG capabilities, in particular, to assess and seek to remedy ESG concerns in late-stage private companies prior to potential IPOs. Through this cross-pollination of skill sets and collaboration with portfolio companies, Hillary seeks to apply ESG best practices across the firm’s private investments.

Hillary is a member of the Wellington Women’s Business Alliance (WBA) leadership team and serves on the WBA Business Impact Committee.

Prior to her current role, Hillary worked as an analyst on the firm’s ESG team. In addition, she was previously a member of Wellington’s Financial Reserves Management Team and was responsible for researching the global insurance market. She also worked at Forrester Research as a senior research associate.

Hillary received her BA in international relations and Hispanic studies from Brown University.
