Edward Hall is NAVY Veteran and a graduate of the Cameron School of Business Entrepreneurship and Business Development program at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. During his years in the service as a technical supervisor, he directed operations of anti-ship missile defense systems. Edward spent nearly two years at Elite Innovations, a Makerspace and engineering product development firm, where he helped start and grow the company while leading teams in the design and development of over thirty products that ranged from general consumer products to high-tech IoT life support systems. His diverse experience with developing new products and commercializing them throughout various markets, coupled with his entrepreneurial drive, helped motivate his desire to start Petrics, Inc. in 2015 when he saw the need for improving pet health and nutrition first hand through his experience with his mother’s pets. Today, his passion has transformed into a reality with Petrics, as he strives to make a difference in the health and well-being of our pets, so they live longer, happier lives.
