Hal has been involved in every segment of International Trade; Exporting and Importing associated with major US food manufacturers for over 45 years. His marketing and sales experience was principally in Latin America, the Middle East and the Pacific Rim countries where he directed the sales programs, launched new products, identified and appointed distributors. Upon retirement Hal decided to continue to be actively engaged in International Trade and had the opportunity to participate in the formation of the International Trade Center of Dallas where he daily counsels all those who are interested in doing business overseas.
Ever since 911, the logistics of International Trade have been revolutionized with a myriad of new rules and regulations and Hal continues to be very much involved with these new procedures on a daily basis at the Trade Center. Product classification for both export and import is a classic example.
Export Administration Regulations (EAR)) govern export activities; US Customs control the import activities and Hal has guided many a client through these complexities.
