He is known for his development skills, but his personal goal is to make sure customers are happy and satisfied. Larry enjoys telling potential clients that he has worked with certain NAV clients “since 1997.” To him, this says a lot about his commitment to customer service, as well as Level Seven’s. Larry enjoys coming to work every day because he likes what he does, the people he works with and the diversity of clients he serves.
