Meet the Team

Katie Smith

Assistant Account Executive

What I have done…
I graduated from The University of Brighton with a BA Hons Media Studies degree in 2016 with a keen interest in Travel. From a young age I have been lucky enough to have travelled around the world both with parents and friends, cementing my passion for travel. These amazing adventures gave me an insight into different cultures which has changed my outlook on life. This appreciation grew in 2013 when I travelled to remote mountains in Morocco to help build a school for a local village community.

What I do now…
I joined Hills Balfour in 2016 on a work placement in the Sales & Marketing team, which was an amazing learning process and helped my develop my skills within the industry. Having dipped my toe into the Sales & Marketing pool, I turned to PR for a permanent position at Hills Balfour. I am currently working on one account which enables me to dedicate myself to the client and allows me to be more creative.

What I do for fun…
I love exploring and being outdoors, so I head outside any chance I get. I can often be found with my head stuck in a good book, trying to learn how to cook or out socialising with my friends. I usually spend my weekends shopping or trying to find a new adventure or activity.

What I bring to Hills Balfour…
As I am relatively new to the industry, I bring a fresh pair of eyes and eagerness to learn and develop.
