The John Hardy Group is a hospitality development services company, with an international presence, that focuses on high-profile projects in a range of capacities from due diligence to full project management.
In his new role, Hall acts as the main point of contact for his clients. His duties include, but are not necessarily limited to, managing the budget, cash flow and schedule, and creating and maintaining long-standing customers through the successful completion of complex and difficult projects.

Mr. Hall began his career as an intern with The John Hardy Group in 2001, and swiftly worked his way up the ranks, serving in a number of capacities, including on-site work, which provided him unique insight and appreciation of the day-to-day activities of a renovation within an occupied hotel. He was Project Director for the program and project management of the recent $65 million Sheraton Dallas renovation and the Ritz Carlton Hotel ballroom renovation in Naples, Florida. He has also provided on-site project management services for: Club 36, Las Vegas, NV; City Center, Chicago, IL; Embassy Suites, San Pedro, CA; Lake Lawn Resort, Delavan, WI and the Metropolitan Hotel, New York City, NY.
