Grocery Industry Icons & Innovators
Co-Founder & CEO
As a sophomore at USC, Spencer asked the question we’ve all asked our friends before: “What should we eat?” Given everyone’s growing list of food allergies and preferences, he had no idea that the answer would eventually lead him to leave the university to launch Halla. Spencer’s focus now is the company’s strategic vision, growth plan, and value offering. As Halla’s principal dealmaker, Spencer works to build robust, symbiotic relationships with a wide range of grocery and retail partners, data providers, vendors, and investors. Spencer can be found somewhere in the mountains — hiking, camping, skiing, or sleeping.
