When asked how she felt about winning our Corporate Director’s Award Hilary said that she was: “extremely proud.”
Having dedicated 24 years to Taylor Rose MW, Hillary’s journey has been nothing short of remarkable. She has excelled in multiple roles within the firm. She has worked in the HR and IT department and has also been heavily involved in Integrations, showcasing her versatility and adaptability within the business.
When asked what she enjoys most about her role, Hilary said: “The colleagues I work with make the role very enjoyable. It is extremely satisfying to be leading a successful and hard-working team.”
However, on the flip side she finds that managing the sheer volume of work that leading such a successful team involves multitasking and prioritising is the most challenging part of her job.
In her own words, Hillary expresses immense pride in receiving the Corporate Director’s Award. She attributes her success to hard work, unwavering commitment, and a continuous pursuit of improvement. Leading a successful and hardworking team brings her great satisfaction.
One piece of advice she would like to share with her colleagues is that “don’t be afraid of making a mistake but make certain to learn from it.”
Here at Taylor Rose MW we have four values: Aspiration, Integrity, Innovation & Commitment. Hilary said Integrity is the one that resonated with her as she believes it is essential in leadership.
