Experience

Cameron Hale has an extensive background in underground distribution work having worked both gas and electric projects. He has worked in the field his entire career, starting as an operator and working up to Project Manager for the Mueller Resource Management, Inc. (MRM) family of companies. He managed projects for MRM in Michigan, Ohio, Hawaii, California, Florida, Indiana, Wisconsin, New York and Minnesota.

In 2007 he was recognized by Harold Mueller (the founder of MRM) as having the unique capability to build his own company. Mueller encouraged Hale to branch off on his own. Hale has expanded the company from its beginning as a cable pulling contractor to all facets of distribution and electric construction, including underground, overhead, network maintenance, civil, restoration, and traffic, primarily for PG&E in the Bay Area. He grew Alvah Group, Inc. and ancillary companies from the inception to over $160 million of revenue in 2023.

Hale understands that every day requires an attention to detail and quality workmanship. He knows that there are others out there that can do the same type of work so Alvah Group has to do it better and safer to maintain the customer’s trust and continued relationship. This mindset is constantly reinforced with subcontractors selected to work on Alvah Group projects.
