We only get one life in this lifetime, so it is important that we make the most of it and live it to the fullest, each and every day. If there is one individual that has done that and then some, it is most certainly Helane Morrison. At the moment, she holds the following jobs: Managing Director, General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer of Hall Capital Partners, in San Francisco. That is a lot of job titles for one person, but if anyone can handle it, it is most certainly Helane Morrison. She has never met a challenge that is too daunting or too scary for her.
One of the great things about her working at Hall Capital is that it is run entirely by women. They are giving women chances that they otherwise might not have gotten in the past. These women stick together, help each other, and stand by each other, through thick and thin. If anyone needs help, guidance, or wisdom, they are there to help, especially Helane Morrison. She is front and center. Everyone needs a helping hand, now and then, and she is more than willing to lend it whenever possible. Helane is secure enough in her life and her job that she isn’t looking behind her back or worried. She knows that a truly great team works well when they work as one.
Her time with the firm started in 2007 and they have only grown with her being there. From the years 1999 to 2007, she was employed by Securities and Exchange Commission. From 1996 to 1999, she was put in charge of the head of the enforcement for the San Francisco SEC office. What is that old expression? They don’t give out jobs or duties to people that cannot handle them. She is able to handle them.
Another wonderful thing about Helane Morrison is how adaptable she has been throughout her career. She knows that in today’s economic climate, it is very important to stay ahead of the game and be ready for whatever life and your career throws at you. You never know when you might be transferred, promoted, or moved to a new job. Because of this, she has always stayed one step ahead of the curve and tried to have as much knowledge at her disposal as possible. As they say, if you want to make god laugh, tell him your plans. Plans are changing, but Helane is still strong as ever.
