Prior to joining TEC, Hal was the Chief Information Officer at The New York City Department of Education, America's largest school district, encompassing over 1 million students, more than 100,000 employees, 1,800 schools and a $25 billion budget. While CIO, Hal worked with fellow school district leaders around the country who were battling a complex and unpredictable process of selecting and buying technology for their schools, a problem that often resulted in students and teachers failing to benefit from the devices and software purchased for their classrooms. He co-founded TEC to help solve that problem.
