Larry joined The Olin Financial Group in mid-2013 with a keen awareness that - although critically important - there is much more to retirement planning than simply managing ones investments. Prior to joining the group, Larry was the VP of Sales for a start-up in Silicon Valley, and was the Director of Sales & Marketing for The Performance Group. After that, Larry joined Wells Fargo Advisors where he focused on retail investors. Because of his work experience, Larry understands that to have a truly successful relationship with his clients, active listening is the most important element. That is why he chose to become part of the Olin Financial Group, “Because of their deep focus on listening to clients and helping them to develop a plan to manage their total wealth picture.” Larry has won the Five Star Wealth Manager* award the past 6 years; 2015-2020.
Larry holds a BA from Eastern Illinois University; supports the Leukemia & Lymphoma foundation, the Cancer Support Group, the Contra Costa County food bank and San Ramon Valley High School. Larry lives in Danville with his wife, son and daughter. When he’s not working, you might find him enjoying all that California has to offer: Baseball, golf, fishing...just about everything outdoors.
