Judyth Piazza interviews Hal Mayes, COO of Alabu on The American Perspective

By Judyth Piazza CEO (Editor)

As Chief Operating Officer, Hal is responsible for the day to day operations of Alabu, including production, inventory control, web site development and Information Technology Administration and support.

Hal displays incredible expertise in Information Technology. Hal developed his love for technology as a child while he watched his father, Dean, utilize technology to increase operational efficiency at his job. He has taught himself at an incredible rate.

By the time he was an adolescent, he was already building and repairing computers, and designing web pages as a side job, and at times acting as a consultant for his father. Hal began attending college at 16, studying computer science and business. He continued his studies at Bryan College and later SUNY Albany.

His father may be responsible for his introduction to technology, but his mother, Maryclaire, is responsible for teaching him the art of soap making.

He has been able to take the information that he learned from Maryclaire and use it to increase production capacity and efficiency as well as develop new products. As he has built on his knowledge base, he continues developing new and innovative products and production methods.
