The St. Louis members of Hill Investment Group are so excited to be back in our freshly remodeled offices that we bought a special t-shirt to celebrate the occasion! See the image below and, seriously, ask us about our ceilings the next time you’re in the new space. We’ve got a story to tell you.
The purpose of the remodel is to make room for new team members and to update many of the features inherent to a 1964 building like the one we inhabit in St. Louis. The construction phase of the project started January 14th and wrapped up on April 26th. We are grateful to our partners in this project – CBRE, Chouteau Building Group, and Amie Corley Interiors – and are thrilled to be back in a space that suits our creative energy. We’ve been tenants of the Pierre Laclede Building since our very early days, and our new lease will take us into the next era of HIG’s growth.
Here at Hill Investment Group, we’ve intentionally set up our infrastructure to offer seamless client care from Houston, St. Louis, or anywhere else we may roam. As such, if we didn’t tell you, you’d probably never know that our Chief Operating Officer Nell Swanson Schiffer has relocated from Houston to St. Louis, at least for a while.
By happy coincidence, her husband was recently accepted into the Internal Medicine Residency program at Washington University in St. Louis. (Congrats, Walter!) With Nell already an integral member of our HIG team, it was even easier for the couple to pick up roots and head to St. Louis.
Never one to miss an opportunity, Nell mentioned the move when she was speaking with the St. Louis Business Journal about our related, 2019 Best Places to Work announcement. In the same issue, she shared her journey with Business Journal readers. It’s an adventure that has taken her from wearing a flame-retardant jumpsuit as a Houston-based petroleum engineer, to her role as HIG’s COO.

The common denominator between Nell’s past and current careers? A passion for pursuing ingenious and disruptive best practices across all of life’s pursuits.
We welcome Nell to our St. Louis office, where we’re confident she’ll continue to be valued firm-wide.
In a recent client newsletter teaser, we were excited to leak the news that Hill Investment Group was a finalist in the St. Louis Business Journal’s 2019 Best Places to Work. Today, we are honored to announce the results. Drumroll, please!
HIG took second place in the small, 10–49 employee category.
Out of 250 nominations and 85 finalists among all categories, we think that represents admirable odds on our results. (“Odds On” … get it?)

As much as we’re enjoying the recognition, we’re also happy to share what we’ve learned with other business owners interested in building similar corporate cultures in their offices. Since successful employees help generate successful outcomes, we figure everyone comes out ahead.
Want to learn more? Give us a call. In the meantime, here’s one of our favorite tips from our spotlight in the St. Louis Business Journal:
“[HIG’s] leadership believes in helping identify each team member’s unique ability. When you know what you do well and get to spend the majority of your time doing it, then work doesn’t feel like work – it’s fun.”
