Rachel is a highly dynamic and motivated individual who thrives on tackling seemingly insurmountable challenges and is driven by success. Before joining Hilton & Hyland, she enjoyed a truly global career as a senior executive and entrepreneur with deep experience in sales, marketing and business development. Born and raised in Winchester, England, she rose to the top of the UK advertising industry, leading communications for a number of high-profile brands including BMW, before becoming Joint Managing Partner of an agency in Sydney, Australia. She then went on to launch three successful environmental start-ups, raising multiple millions of dollars in difficult economic conditions, developing complex strategies with active stakeholder support, and managing high-profile boards comprised of leaders in business, government and philanthropy.
Along with her unparalleled professional track record and worldwide network of contacts, Rachel brings to Hilton & Hyland a passion for architecture, art and design, nurtured through her extensive travels, and a special interest in LEED-certified and resource-efficient homes, drawing on her work in the sustainability field. Her deep love for her adopted home of Los Angeles continually inspires her to unlock for her clients all the unique opportunities our great city has to offer – aesthetic, experiential and financial.
With her insatiable intellectual curiosity and quintessentially English sense of humor, Rachel loves nothing more than expanding her horizons by encountering new people and ideas. Her energy and enthusiasm are contagious. She is currently learning Muay Thai boxing, and has been involved for a number of years with mentoring young women to help them fulfill their personal and professional potential.
Rachel’s goal is to provide her clients with a flawless service of passion, discretion, diligence and dedication, as well as total confidence that they have the most highly-skilled, determined and strategic agent possible working on their team.
