Jill will share headlines and takeaways from MCA’s brand new Restaurant Market Report, the definitive annual report on the UK restaurant sector, focusing on the trends, challenges and opportunities impacting it in 2019 and beyond.


Jill joined HIM – which is part of William Reed Business Media (WRBM) – in 2012 as Insight and Marketing Director, becoming Managing Director in 2013. Jill’s focus is on maintaining knowledge and strong relationships across the industry, taking her and her team from trade shows to the shop floor, conferences to cash and carry depots.
Before WRBM, Jill worked for Marks and Spencer in the UK and Europe, opening new formats in new markets. Jill then moved from retail to manufacturing with roles for Unilever and Birdseye, working with some of the most iconic products and loved brands.
Jill is proud of him!’s reputation as a respected professional research company with a huge personality, underpinned by WRBM’s heritage and expertise. She augments her dedicated industry research by engaging in her not unrelated passions: shopping, drinking and eating.
