Larry has had a successful career encompassing a blend of sales, marketing, operations, and supply chain leadership experience spanning more than 35 years. On top of that, Larry earned his Executive MBA from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. The skillset Larry has cultivated through his professional and academic experience is as extensive as his professional achievements; he is analytical but visionary, personable but disciplined. His aptitude for achievement in diverse areas has driven his success, allowing him to hold a host of executive level positions that included CEO and ascend to the number two position in a several hundred million-dollar organizations.
In Larry’s work as a coach, he teaches his clients to use versatility to manage people and functions, to fiercely commit to achieving their goals, and to use a team-oriented leadership style to maximize revenue and results.
Over two years ago, we partnered with Activate Group to help us establish core values, create a company culture, and future enhances our growing business. I continue to be amazed by all the benefits that our coach Larry Rutkowski provides our company. He is an integral part of our business now and I could not imagine not having him on the team. Our monthly calls and quarterly in person leadership meetings have enabled all members of our team to be focused and engaged on the common task at hand. I could not recommend Larry as a coach strong enough to any potential company or executive looking to go to the next level.
Larry Rutkowski was brought into our group of companies during a time of rapid expansion. He was instrumental in helping me professionalize the businesses and manage the growth. He helped create a company culture, implement core values, and accountability structures, set annual and quarterly metrics as well as coach existing senior management in the scaling up model. I recommend him to anyone trying to grow and improve the health of their business.
Our eNPS is really high if you compare that to last year, the business is in a lot different shape and we’ve come a long way. I want to say Thank You Larry for all your hard work, who knows where we would be without you. Obviously, the success of the business, our cash position, our net income position, our eNPS, our collaboration, our leadership team improvements, all that kinda stuff is vastly different and you were certainly a huge part of bringing that all together to have us perform the way we are now. Thank you again and looking forward to making more great successes for our company in the future!”
Larry Rutkowski provided consulting services through the pandemic and its aftermath. He became an integral part of the Executive Team and helped each team member improve where we needed it the most. During this time, our revenues doubled, and our profits stayed the same…think about scaling revenues while maintaining profits. I strongly recommend Larry to anyone seriously looking to scale their business, improve the most important metrics, and identify blind spots that you may not know exist.
