San Diego Metropolitan magazine has named San Diego Workforce Partnership (SDWP) Chief Operating Officer Andy Hall as one of its 2017 40 Under 40 Award honorees. This impactful group of men and women represent some of the best and brightest minds in San Diego County.
Hall oversees 60 employees and $35 million in annual revenue. Recognizing the changing landscape of public workforce development funding and opportunity, Hall has led efforts to transform the organization from a primarily pass-through funding agency to a dynamic nonprofit with multiple funding streams and a growing fee-for-service practice. Since joining the organization in 2013, Hall has increased private funding by 400 percent, attracted more than $15 million in competitive grant funds into the region and increased the number of funding streams from 17 to 43. Hall is viewed as a national leader in public employment programs, and has spoken on the subject at national, state and local conferences and forums. He is advising the U.S. Department of Labor and the state of California on public policy and financial regulations and guidance. He holds a bachelor’s degree from UC San Diego and a master’s degree from Clark University in Worchester, Mass.
“Andy continues to make an incredible impact at SDWP,” says Peter Callstom, SDWP CEO. “He leads a large team and budget that provides diverse programs serving thousands in our region. An innovative leader, Andy has initiated many new projects, grants and partnerships that are producing great outcomes.”
