Learn more about Hal and his take on the Austin market:
WHERE ARE YOU FROM? WHAT BROUGHT YOU TO AUSTIN?
I grew up just outside of Austin in Marble Falls. I attended Baylor University where I graduated with a degree in Finance (Sic ‘Em Bears!). After graduating, it was a priority to get back here. My roots are here, and I love the diversity, people, and hill country life.
WHAT IS YOUR PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE AND BACKGROUND?
After I graduated from Baylor, I worked in the hospitality industry doing corporate sales for the Four Seasons Resorts & Hotels. In 2008, I transitioned into the management consulting industry, gaining over 10 years of business development experience within professional services, including operational management consulting, learning and development consulting, and market research and growth consulting.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF DOING BUSINESS IN AUSTIN?
Without a doubt, the people. The diversity and intellect of Austin professionals stands out to me the most. Over the years, I’ve grown a strong rolodex of contacts here and I’m constantly impressed with the genuine demeanor and intelligence level of the folks I connect with. There’s also a diverse mix of industries here, and it’s not limited to any specific verticals. From high-tech and startups, to private equity and venture capital firms to biotech— there’s a strong mix of companies throughout the business community.
WHAT IS THE STATE OF THE RECRUITING INDUSRTY IN AUSTIN RIGHT NOW?

WHY IS EXPANDING TO AUSTIN A SMART MOVE FOR BVOH?
BVOH has had extreme success in the San Francisco recruiting market. We’ve established a strong reputation and solid base of clients and candidates throughout the past 17 years. Many of the companies and finance professionals we’ve worked with have gravitated towards the Austin market within the past few years.
