Albert Hayoun is President of Standard Resources Corporation, a marketing firm specializing in metals, minerals, and alloys, which he helped establish in 1994. He also has established agencies, companies, and subsidiaries in several countries including China, Mexico, and Venezuela.
In November 1956, during the Suez Crisis, Mr. Hayoun's family was forced to leave Egypt. With the assistance of the French authorities, Albert; his two younger brothers, Joseph and Sami; and his parents, Corrine and Edouard, moved to Marseille. In May of 1961, they immigrated to the United States with the assistance of HIAS. Mr. Hayoun lived in New York for the next three decades, until moving to Cherry Hill, NJ with his wife Rochelle Mathalon—also a former HIAS client—whom he met at Brooklyn College. He received his B.A. in teaching from Brooklyn College in 1972.
Albert and Rochelle have three daughters—Jennifer, Lauren, and Karen—and a grandson, Joey.
