BIG NEWS at HMC Partners!!!
One of the wonderful by-products of growth and longevity for companies is the need to hire additional quality people to perpetuate that growth and longevity. HMC Partners is excited to announce the addition of Chris Hilliard to our firm. Chris will become HMC’s third advisor and will work closely with John and me. He’s been advisor for two years with another well-known firm and shares the same “client-first” approach we incorporate at HMC Partners. Chris graduated from the Naval Academy in 2005 and served on various warships as a Naval Officer. In 2010, he returned to the Naval Academy to serve as the Character Development Officer teaching ethics and leadership to the next generation of officers. Needless to say, having a character builder who graduated from the Naval Academy says a lot about the caliber of person we have joining us.
Chris grew up in Greensboro and Frances and I have known him for the twenty years since we moved to town. In fact, we got to watch him grow from a teenager coaching my children on the swim team to an Officer graduating from the Academy to a Gentleman who married way beyond his means. Let’s just say ‘he out-kicked his coverage’ in that department. Laura Jeanne Hilliard graduated from UNC (Chapel Hill) and has returned to UNC to obtain her Master’s in Occupational Therapy while being the mother of their newborn daughter, Taylor born in September. While they both love to work-out at CrossFit and hike, John and I look forward to converting him into an avid waterfowler.
You will get to meet Chris at company events, seminars, and we will have him with us in many upcoming reviews we will have with you. Please welcome him to HMC Partners. We are certain you will be as impressed as we.
