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 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. She works in our Boston office.
