Adv. Hila Zetler was born and raised in Israel, growing up in the beautiful coastal town of Caesarea.
After completing her Bachelor of Business Administration (BA) specializing in Information Technology together with her Bachelor of Law (LLB) at the IDC (Interdisciplinary Centre Herzliya), Hila completed her law internship at one of the leading law firms in Israel and was admitted as an advocate to the Israeli Law Society in 2004.
Hila moved to South Africa in 2005 and completed her Masters of Law (LLM) degree specialising in International Law at the University of Stellenbosch. From 2007 she spent two and a half years in the United Kingdom, where she worked in the London office of Clyde & Co. in their Commercial Litigation Department. During her time in the UK, Hila also qualified as an English Solicitor.
Hila returned to South Africa and, in 2012, completed an HDip Tax at the University of Cape Town, completing a research study about the compression of the South African and the Israeli taxation systems, which was published in a prominent legal magazine.
Between 2014 and 2016, she worked as the Media Liaison and Legal Advisor for the South Africa Zionist Federation (Cape Council) and served as a member of the Management Committee of the SAZF (Cape Council) until the end of 2020. Her community and Zionist commitment is further evidenced by her involvement with the Women’s International Zionist Organisation (WIZO) for the last decade.
For the past 18 years, Hila has managed different aspects of her family’s business interests while also working as a legal advisor. She is married to Adrian and is the mother of two young children.
WIZO Cape Town is thrilled to have Hila as their new Chairman, and we all wish her much success and fulfilment in her new role!
