Recently, Dan Ferrisi, editor-in-chief of Commercial Integrator, caught up with Ken Eagle, vice president of technology, Hall Technologies, to discuss the company’s exciting evolution. The video interview is included in its entirety here.

As most CI readers know, Hall Technologies was formerly known as Hall Research. Ali and Gail Haghjoo, founders of Hall Research, completed their planned retirement on July 31, 2020. At the same time, new CEO Jason Schwartz came onboard to take the helm. Schwartz oversaw a reimagining of the company, ushering in a new name, Hall Technologies, in January 2021.

Likewise, in coordination with executive team members Hal Truax (vice president of sales) and Eagle, he closed what had been the Hall Research headquarters in southern California and opened a new Hall Technologies facility in Dallas this past December. Finally, in recent weeks, the company recruited Matt Kingsley as CFO, rounding out a robust leadership team.

In the interview, Eagle provides perspective on all those things, while also whetting the commercial AV industry’s appetite for new Hall Technologies products. “As we roll into 2022, we’ve got lots of great new products and new family lines of products that we’re going to be launching for the year,” Eagle says. “We’ll really see Hall Technologies move in an exciting new direction.”

One such new product is perfect for education, while also suiting corporate applications. The Apollo technology room kit is an all-in-one kit to run an entire classroom, meeting space or training room. Eagle shares more details about Apollo in the video interview. It’ll be available later this quarter. He also shares details about Hall Technologies’ plans to release UC&C solutions, including peripheral devices.

Eagle rounds out the interview by talking about trends he’s seeing across the education and corporate verticals. He notes the increasing integration of software into solutions. “What’s really starting to enhance what we can do for customers is software,” he observes.
