Helane Morrison’s Rise to the Top
What did I notice that was different about Hall Capital? Not only is it one of the top firms to manage money, but it is also led by three women. The leaders of this San Francisco, California, company are: Helane Morrison, managing director, general counsel and chief compliance officer, Sarah Stein, President and CEO Kathryn Hall. In my opinion, this makes them positive role models for other women who strive to be in corporate America.
Helane Morrison points out another reason why I think this agency is so successful. One of their top priorities for their firm is to aim for diversity. It also seems they hire staff that are resilient, independent, and have the ability to be flexible. That is why women are easily recruited to work for Hall Capital. It is not common for women to be the leaders of an investment firm.
Other benefits that I think make Hall Capital an attractive place to work is their benefits. They offer both maternity and paternity leave time for families. They also allow flexibility in the work day schedule so their employees can fulfill their family responsibilities along with work place commitments.
Morrison’s strong leadership is a big reason for the continued growth of this company. Her career began when she received a B.S. in Journalism from Northwestern University, as well as a J.D. from the University of California at Berkeley, School of Law. Her career excelled from there.
Prior to her position at Hall Capital Morrison led the San Francisco Office of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Addiitonally, she also practiced law with the law firm Howard, Rice, Nemerovski, Canady, Falk & Tabkin. Here she specialized in business litigation and defenseof private securities actions.

There is no doubt in my mind Hall Capital is led by strong leadership. Helane Morrison and her fellow women colleagues know how to build, grow and succeed in the business world. They will continue to forge the way for other women to play an important role in the financial world.
