Meet our Founder - Charles S. Hayes

As a sixth grader in the 1950s, Charlie Hayes began pursuing his interests in radio communications as a ham radio operator in the basement of his parent’s home. Purchasing World War II surplus parts and equipment, he would build radio transmitters and communicate with other ham radio operators throughout the world. 

Since that time, his education and career have revolved around the intersection of business and engineering. Charlie graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 1965 with a BS in Mechanical Engineering. In the 1980’s, Charlie bought and operated a radio station in South Bend, IN. From there, he founded a beeper company, Alert Paging, and in 1987 he built his first radio communications tower.  Charlie then went on to open Charles S. Hayes Inc, dba Hayes Towers.
