Donald Braun: President, HALL Group
In Episode 2 of our “Getting Neighborly” podcast, you will meet Donald Braun, president of the Dallas-based HALL Group, a private diversified investment company.
With nearly 40 years of experience in all aspects of commercial real estate and real estate finance, Don oversees and directs the implementation of the company’s investment strategies and management of its core business operations.
He has served as an executive board member for nonprofit organizations including The Real Estate Council (TREC), the North Texas Center for Technology, the Collin County Business Alliance, the Business Council for the Arts and the Fairview Economic Development Corporation (FEDC).
Don brings to the FEDC table the unique perspective of both a highly experienced commercial real estate developer and a 20-year Fairview, Texas resident.
“[Economic development] is about managing growth according to community priorities, not trying to prevent it, because that doesn’t work.”
