As Chief Executive of Alzheimer's Research UK Hilary has led the transformation of the charity to one of the leading medical research charities in the UK - seeing the charity more than triple its income in three years and therefore significantly enhanced the organisations ability to fund ground-breaking new projects.

She has led major public campaigns aiming to shift public perceptions of dementia and break down the stigma around these diseases.

Before joining Alzheimer’s Research UK, Hilary worked at Age UK, improving the lives of people in later life both in the UK and internationally. Hilary also brings experience of working in Government and with the pharmaceutical industry in corporate affairs roles. Hilary holds an honorary doctorate in medicine from The University of Exeter.
