When I started with Bio-Rad, Larry was my sales manager. Of all the managers I've had in my sales career, I've learned and benefited the most from working under Larry. He's a great coach, team builder and has an in-depth understanding of the sales process. I appreciated the opportunity to work with him, and would most welcome the chance to do so again.

Larry knows the difference between managing organizations and managing people and he excels at both. He gives clear objectives, actionable feedback, and is capable of wielding praise and criticism appropriately to motivate excellence. It was my pleasure to learn about management from someone who operates at his level.
