Hilary Sims

Hilary is passionate about regional Australia and the issues faced by rural communities, with her knowledge and appreciation of agriculture stemming from involvement in the family’s commercial cattle property in the Upper Hunter Valley, NSW.

She also has an understanding of agriculture in a global context, having completed a year of agricultural economics at Purdue University in Indiana, USA, during her studies at the University of New England.

Hilary has broad event management experience following two years at the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW (RAS), working across the Agriculture, Marketing and Sydney Royal Easter Show teams.

While at the RAS, Hilary was heavily involved in engaging the next generation in agriculture. She successfully coordinated a state-wide professional development program for emerging rural leaders for two consecutive years and helped manage social media for the organisation’s youth network, delivering rural focused content to the 18-35 age bracket.

Since joining Cox Inall, Hilary has been using her social media knowledge to provide content for several clients, as well as providing support with writing and project management.

Areas of expertise include:

  • Project management
  • Stakeholder engagement
  • Social media


  • Bachelor of Agriculture/Bachelor of Business, University of New England, Armidale
