Currently, Helane Morrison is the Managing Director and General Counsel of Hall Capital Partners. She is also its Chief Compliance Officer. The company is based in San Francisco.
This is a highly successful investment company in California. A unique feature of this company is that it is run entirely by women only.
In 2007, Helane Morrison joined the firm. Before this, she was heading the Securities and Exchange Commission’s San Francisco office. This was from 1999 to 2007. There were a number of responsibilities that she was dealing with. These included securities law enforcement in addition to fraud litigation besides regulatory issues. She was handling these for Northern California besides five other states in the Northwest. From 1996 to 1999 she was heading enforcement at the San Francisco office of the Securities and Exchange Commission. She was representing the Commission to various other government agencies as well as to the news media.
She earned her B. S. Degree from Northwestern University in Chicago, Illinois. This was in journalism. She got her J. D. from the University of California at Berkeley, School of Law.
Helane Morrison passed the bar and started working as a law clerk. This was for Hon. Richard Posen. He was from the US Court of Appeals for the Seventh District. She worked there from 1984 to 1985.
The reason why Helane Morrison joined Hall Capital Partners is its diverse leadership culture. This is very different from anywhere else in the finance industry. She could also feel that investors were still not able to trust finance professionals across the country post the market crash of 2007- 2008.
This is a trait of Helane Morrison that has left an indelible imprint on me and several others. Her main aim at Hall Capital was to help restore this kind of confidence in the public’s mind. She opted for her current position as she felt that she would be able to do the most in order to accomplish her goals.
She has a career of justice. All her endeavors seam together endlessly. These range from journalism to working with the government. Another thing that I am impressed about is her consistent fight against all kinds of deceptive corporate crimes. She has always pushed herself to fight against corruption constantly.
Helane Morrison has an affinity only for those businesses which are based on upholding ethics. She is promoting upstanding values all the time on her personal as well as professional front.
