Hilary leads the interface between healthcare and life sciences. She has worked in both practices, being a doctor by background, but currently works predominantly in life sciences. Hilary is actively involved with the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association (HBA), where she was honored as a luminary in 2015.

Hilary discusses the development of the life sciences practice across all member firms at KPMG. As we grow our capability, we have more and more women leading those opportunities. Whether it is change management, or developing the relationships with clients. As the industry becomes more diverse from a gender perspective, Hilary believes, KPMG is more diverse in reflecting that change.

She finishes the video by talking about the life sciences industry 20 years into the future - “It’s very obvious that women are coming up through the industry in larger and larger numbers but, as yet, there is not a single big pharmaceutical CEO in the world who is a women and I think that particular crack in the glass ceiling needs to happen next.”
