Will Alexander Named Chief Investment Officer at Hall Capital

OKLAHOMA CITY (June 13, 2022) – Hall Capital Chairman and CEO Fred Hall has announced that Will Alexander will become the company’s new chief investment officer, tasked with pursuing investments and acquisitions for the 102-year-old family-owned company. Alexander returns to Hall Capital from Nashville Soccer Club, where he has served since 2018 as chief revenue officer. Alexander is the first person to hold the title of chief investment officer at Hall Capital and is only the second non-Hall family member since the 1980s to hold a C-suite position for the company. Alexander was a managing director at Hall Capital between 2016 and 2018 and he has also served on the company’s advisory board.

“We think a lot of Will, and we’re thrilled to have this opportunity to work with him in a new capacity,” said Fred Hall. “We know that as chief investment officer he will help grow our deal flow and our holdings. We are especially excited about his deep connections in Nashville, which continues to be a very important market for us.”

“From the first meeting with Major League Soccer about launching an expansion bid in 2016, to the opening of GEODIS Park last month, I have spent the last six years doing all that I could to help make the dream of having a successful MLS club in Nashville a reality,” said Alexander. “I am fortunate to have been a part of an incredible journey with Nashville SC and I look forward to the next chapter of my professional life with Hall Capital. The company is doing so many amazing things in Nashville and around the country, and I am very happy to have the chance to work with the Hall family again.”

While at Nashville SC, Alexander oversaw the club’s commercial operations, including its jersey partnership with Renasant, a stadium naming rights deal with GEODIS and the building of one of the largest season ticket bases in the league. As a co-founder of the MLS Organizing Committee, he also launched the movement to bring MLS to Nashville, which included building community support for an MLS team, beginning negotiations with league and city officials about Nashville’s expansion bid and recruiting John Ingram to serve as the new club’s lead investor. Earlier in his career, Alexander served as chief of staff at the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development and he also practiced law for Vinson & Elkins in Austin and Dubai. Will sits on the boards of Montgomery Bell Academy and the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, and he is a minority owner of Nashville SC.

Hall Capital has continued to increase its presence in Nashville in recent years, especially through real estate development. In 2021, it sold its “18th & Chet” development on Music Row for one of the highest prices in Nashville history, and its new “17th & Grand” development is currently under construction.

Hall Capital is a family-owned private investment company with offices in Oklahoma City, Nashville, Chicago, Dallas and Tulsa. Its roots extend back to legendary automotive pioneer Fred Jones’ first enterprise in 1920. Today, led by Jones’ grandsons – Fred Hall, Kirkland Hall, and Brooks “Boots” Hall, Jr. – Hall Capital is home to a diversified collection of business interests focused on automotive, real estate and private investment. The company continues a long legacy of service to the community through the Fred Jones Family Foundation. For more information, visit hall-capital.com.
