Today, as CEO and Chairman of Pall-Ex, the UK’s leading palletised freight distribution network, Hilary is an inspirational role model for entrepreneurs. Having started from nothing, she has grown the company into an international network with a combined turnover of over £100m. Pall-Ex makes daily deliveries to every UK postcode as well as operating a scheduled daily service to 38 European countries with further current expansion planned across Europe. Both Hilary and her company have achieved an impressive array of firsts within the logistics sector – they are innovators, not followers, as evidenced by multiple industry awards.
Hilary campaigns tirelessly for various charities including The Carers Trust for whom she became Vice President in 2012. In addition, she is Patron for The Stroke Association and Fresh Start – New Beginnings. She has also been recognised for her contribution to business in Leicestershire with two honorary degrees from the University of Leicester and the University of Bolton.
A hugely inspiring and motivating speaker, Hilary’s speeches demonstrate how the skills learned as a daughter, wife and mother can be seamlessly transferred to the Boardroom. She is an ardent supporter of women climbing the corporate ladder and is passionate about enterprise. She shares her experiences and gives tips on successfully starting and running a business, combining it with straight-talking advice and plenty of humour.
