Ellen Johnson

Asst Account Executive

What have I done…
From a young age, I have had a passion for travel and languages and have been lucky enough to visit some beautiful destinations, some of my favourites being Borneo, Cambodia, Laos, the US, Canada and Mauritius. As a part of my degree, I spent a year in St Etienne, France where I attended John Monnet University to study French Literature and grammar. This not only allowed me to become fluent in French, but being on the continent gave me the chance to travel Europe. Whether it was taking a ten hour bus across Spain or relaxing in the South of France, much of my time outside study was spent planning the next adventure. After finishing my BA in English Literature and French, I knew that I wanted to pursue a career in travel PR and was extremely excited to begin my career at Hills Balfour.

What I do now…
I joined the Hills Balfour team in May 2017 and after a fantastic summer learning the PR ropes as an intern, I was fortunate enough to be offered a full time position as an Assistant Account Executive. I am working on an exciting and varied portfolio of clients including tourist boards, tour operators and cruise.

What I do for fun… 
Having lived near the city my whole life, I love to spend my time in London exploring its hidden gems and array of restaurants as well as the many street food markets and fantastic shopping streets. Working in the travel industry means that I am always planning my next trip in an attempt to tick off as many bucket list destinations as possible. After making friends from all over the world during my year abroad, I also love to spend as many weekends as I can visiting them in their home countries. 

What I bring to Hills Balfour… 
Enthusiasm, lots of energy, French language skills and of course, a passion for travel!
