Joe Hall founded Hall Strategies in 2004 following a decade as a partner at The Ingram Group. He specializes in media relations, government relations and grassroots campaigns.
As a former newspaper reporter and the coordinator of dozens of statewide campaigns, Joe knows Tennessee media, business and government leaders better than anyone in the business. He has played key roles in signature campaigns to keep the NHL Predators in Nashville, help Memphis get an NBA franchise and build FedExForum and establish charter schools for public school reform.
His client experience includes NHL Predators, Anheuser-Busch Companies, Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority, Nashville Capital Network, Greater Nashville Association of Realtors, Southern Land Company, Nashville Convention & Visitors Bureau and Tennessee Medical Association.
A native Memphian, he was a reporter for The (Memphis) Commercial Appeal and Nashville Business Journal.
Joe is a former member of the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Governors. Nashville Post has regularly named Joe to its “In Charge” list of Middle Tennessee business, political and civic power brokers.
