Women like Helane Morrison don’t come around every day. With her unique brand of skills, talents, and diversity, she sets herself apart from the pack. All of this has come to her, however, thanks to her hard work, dedication, and commitment to her craft. At the present moment, she is General Counsel, Managing Director, and Chief Compliance Officer of Hall Partners. In addition to that, she is also a member of the firm’s Executive Committee. She is the type of individual that has been given a lot to do, but as they say, they don’t give you anything that you cannot handle. She likes responsibilities and is proud of the fact that they have given her these tasks. It shows that they have faith and a certain level of trust in her.
Out of all of her job titles, the one that sticks out to me the most is General Counsel. This is not the type of position they give to anyone and it comes with it a lot of pressure. When you have to counsel someone, they are trusting you to give them the best advice possible. You have to make all of the right moves and know the right things to do and say in a particular situation. If you give poor advice or tell someone the wrong thing, it can really set them back and put them in a bad position.
I would say this is the job she takes the most seriously. When it comes to counseling, Helane puts careful thought, consideration, and time into it. While she takes all of her jobs seriously, as each one serves a different purpose, when someone is counting on her for counsel, she knows she has to get it right. She gets it right by doing copious amounts of research. Before she says anything or does anything, she wants to make sure she knows what she is talking about and doesn’t want to rush the process.
That has the been the life and story of Helane Morrison, as she is someone that is diligent in every aspect of her life. Of course, no one is perfect and mistakes happen, but rarely do they happen with her. When they do happen, she tends to beat herself up over it and really takes it hard and to heart. This shows that she cares and it is wonderful to have someone out there that cares.
