In Memorium

Senior Director – Larry co-founded the firm in 1987 and successfully led a number of transactions. Prior to founding The Fortune Group, he spent his entire career with Emerson Electric Co., which included serving as President and sitting on Emerson’s Board of Directors. During that time, Emerson grew from $30 million to $8 billion in sales. A major factor in Emerson’s growth over that period was an extensive acquisition program in which over 100 businesses and product lines were acquired. Larry was involved in all aspects of this activity during his career. He graduated cum laude from Princeton University and served as an officer in the United States Air Force.
