Meet the Team

Lauren Ellis

Senior Account Executive

What I have done…
While studying English and American Literature with Drama Studies at the University of Kent, I had the opportunity to spend six months in America at Indiana University. Travelling to different states and meeting new people definitely gave me the travel bug, so after graduating I picked up sticks and travelled around Australia for three months. Despite the unpredicted downpour, the Whitsundays or rather ‘Wetsundays’ sailing trip was definitely a highlight, as well as reuniting with friends I had met overseas. I then returned to the UK where I started my career in PR. Starting off in the fashion industry I then moved across to travel, which is where I am today!

What I do now…
With a real love for travel I joined the Hills Balfour team as a PR Account Executive, working with our clients Las Vegas, Mauritius and The Gambia. Press trips, news creation, events and social media are my bread and butter.  

What I do for fun…
Having been part of musical theatre and dance society at university, I try to catch the latest shows in London with friends and family, getting inspiration from the stars of the West End. I know a thing or two when it comes to dance and attend weekly ballet classes. I would not necessarily say I am the next Darcey Bussell but I get top marks for my pirouette!

What I bring to Hills Balfour…
I’ve got bags of enthusiasm and a bank full of creative ideas which I always endeavour to share.
