Sean-Patrick M. Hillman
Chairman, President & Co-Founder
Sean-Patrick literally grew up in the fields of advertising and public relations with his parents having successful careers in both industries. Hillman began his career in his teens in the mailroom of his family’s PR agency, Corbin-Hillman Communications, working as a nightclub promoter at night. At university, he focused on journalism, interning at The Charlie Rose Show and CNN. He was then hired, at age 19, as the youngest producer in broadcast journalism for CNNfn, CNN’s financial news network, for almost three years.
Hillman joined Corbin-Hillman Communications full-time in 1997. Since then, he has helped to launch and maintain some of the most iconic brands in beauty, lifestyle, entertainment and food & spirits including Sephora, Shiseido, European Wax Center, Disney, Barbie, Spice World Tour, Christina Aguilera, Supermodel Valeria Mazza, BACARDI Rums, Jose Cuervo Tequila, National Geographic, and Bermuda. Hillman is also a member of the Society of Professional Journalists and Public Relations Society of America.
It is Hillman’s history of creating successful marketing platforms, as well as his passion for clients’ brands, that led him to create hillCORP, LLC.; a hybrid marketing holding company.
Sean-Patrick lives in Manhattan with Kylie and their rescue dogs, Snickers and Rolo.
As a third-generation New Yorker, Hillman can often be found during the summer taking in America’s Favorite Pastime at Yankee Stadium.
