chief creative officer // founding partner
Hal sets the creative and innovation standards for our product. As talented group creative director and award-winning art director before co-founding Barber Warren, he led the global creative effort on Amway/Nutrilite and fathered the Pergo the dog campaign that not only re-ignited the brand but is still creating brand activists today. Hal also created captivating and enduring campaigns for Aruba, Coca-Cola, AMC Theatres, DeWalt/Black & Decker, Southern Company and TVA. As a Global Paint for Charity board member, he also designed their brand identity and packaging. After hours, when not enjoying family, tennis or golf (or a Weller, neat), you’ll find him at his lake house or cruising Lake Hartwell.
