Former Cinergy exec to open executive search office

Joe Hale, who retired nearly a year ago from Cincinnati-based Cinergy Corp. as chief communications officer and president of Cinergy Foundation, is opening a Carmel office of the Chicago headhunting firm DHR International.

Hale, 56, said he didn’t want to move to Charlotte, N.C., with Duke Energy Corp.’s acquisition of the utility and didn’t want to retire.

The office, at 550 Congressional Drive, will focus on executive-level searches in energy, corporate communications and not-for-profits.
