Does your company need Fresh Eyes?
Sometimes all it takes is someone with a fresh viewpoint, unencumbered by company politics or culture to help find the right solution. I will work with you to look at where you want to go and help you find the best way to get there.

I worked with Larry as he built and then sold Safedata. Larry’s successful leadership was grounded in disciplined objectivity and a broad skill set. Larry recognizes no two businesses are alike, but good corporate governance (action plans and accountability) is an essential ingredient to success.

Peter Dorsey

President, The Business Development Company

Larry is a strategic leader who manages for results. We worked together on a marketing campaign for his company where he drove innovating thinking and consist improvement in the campaign. He was able to quickly grasp the nuances of online marketing and work with the team to deliver results, while maintaining a strategic focus.

David Reske

Founder & President, Nowspeed, Inc.

Larry brought his analytical approach to every aspect of the business. After carefully observing the sales team in action [and] current marketing materials, he put in place a carefully crafted, highly effective marketing program that drove fully qualified leads to the sales team, essentially transforming the sales process. I highly recommend Larry and would be honored to work with him again in the future.
