Originally from LaGrange, Kentucky, Allen grew up with strong examples of public service. With a father who served over 30 years as county master commissioner, and a grandfather who was county judge for nearly 40 years, public service was simply part of life. Allen doesn’t remember a time when local events and politics weren’t part of lively dinner table conversation.
After graduating from Middle Tennessee State University in 1989 with a Bachelor’s degree in Aerospace, Allen decided to reside permanently in Tennessee. In the 90’s he worked as an IT technician, trainer, and consultant. During this time he served in several leadership roles, including that of an instructor and resource coordinator for a 12 million dollar contract with the State of Tennessee. In 1999 Allen began Hall Consulting & Training. Notable companies with whom Allen has worked, include Cracker Barrel Corporate, Bridgestone, and Saturn. This year Hall Consulting & Training enters its 15th year.
In 2004, Allen and his wife, Heather, purchased their first home and moved to Spring Hill to start a family. Their daughter, Clara, was born in 2006. In 2009 Allen was elected to the Spring Hill Board of Mayor and Alderman. In 2010 their son Quint was born. The Halls are active members of First Baptist, Spring Hill, where Allen and Heather have taught the kindergarten Sunday school class for the last four years.
Allen currently serves as the BOMA representative to the Spring Hill Board of Zoning Appeals, Chairman of the Transportation Advisory Committee, and Chairman of the Web Site Steering Committee.
