Partner, Simpl Technology Solutions & Simpl Giving
Larry has over 30 years of experience working with information technology and business process improvement in a variety of industries and environments including retail and franchise operations, consumer packaged goods, healthcare, and manufacturing.
As a partner at Simpl Technology Solutions and Simpl Giving, he currently works to help educational institutions, business enterprises and not-for-profits manage IT assets, optimize IT asset value recovery, and increase overall sustainability efforts.
Prior to Simpl, his love of all things music brought him to the School of Rock in Geneva, IL as the General Manager where he provided an exceptional music education experience for students, parents, and staff. He also directed school marketing and
booking for Geneva’s House Band tour which included gigs at iconic venues like Chicago House of Blues and the Main Stage at Milwaukee’s Summerfest.
Before School of Rock, Larry spent a decade selling IT solutions at Apple, Inc., and provided federal government presales engineering at technology solutions giant CDW. His IT career started at The Chicago Tribune where his team was one of the first to use
digital typesetting to produce a major metropolitan newspaper. After the Tribune, he leveraged IT to streamline business operations for consumer packaged goods giants Tetra Pak Inc, Wm. Wrigley Jr. Co., Equal Sweetener, and eventually as CIO at Evans Food Group out of Chicago.
