Hallett announces retirement

MOBILE, Ala. -- Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce President Win Hallett announced his retirement during the annual board of directors meeting Friday. Hallett, who has been president since 1991, will retire sometime in 2013 when a successor is on board. The chamber is the lead industry recruiter for the Mobile area, and has played a prominent role in a string of Mobile job recruitment wins, most notably the recent decision of Airbus to build an A320 assembly plant at Brookley Aeroplex. "It has been an exhilarating ride. I have had the opportunity to travel literally all over the world meeting people and making friends in pursuit of having them come to Mobile and invest in our area to create jobs,” he said in a chamber release.
