Al Waller is a long time native of the Baltimore area. He entered the field of Human Resources Management starting as an HR Generalist with PwC (Pricewaterhouse-Coopers). This marked the beginning of a 30 year career that advanced into the management level for locally and globally based corporations. His primary area of expertise has focused on but not limited to: Talent Acquisition /Retention, Employee Relations as well as Training & Development.
In 2004, he established Applewood Partners where he has specialized in advising emerging small business clients as both an internal and external consultant. During this period he has developed insight into a variety of industries including: health care and insurance. Some of these clients have included: St. Paul's Travelers, Nationwide Better Health, Johns Hopkins Health System and F&G Life Insurance. As a footnote, this is not Al's first experience in radio. In a former life, he was a Disc Jockey playing music on local college radio stations including Johns Hopkins' WJHU/AM when the signal traveled less than a quarter of a mile, if that!
"Hosting Clearpath has been rewarding as it allows the project team to impart critical information regarding health and retirement that directly impact our listening audience. And, the fact that my broadcast experience and WYPR's roots go back to WJHU, it feels like I’ve come full circle."
