Experience

In 2017, Larry celebrated his 50th year in the tourism and hospitality industry.   Starting at the age of 13, he has built a career predominately in the hotel and resort business, holding key positions with Marriott, Radisson, Sheraton, and La Mansion hotels, and with independently owned and operated hotels and resorts.
