Larry is President of Cornerstone International Group.
Since founding Shoemaker & Associates in 1990, Larry has been conducting senior-level recruiting assignments, executive coaching and leadership assessments throughout North America, as well as globally.
His focus is on the candidate’s fit into an organization’s culture.
Larry’s experience as an executive coach and assessment trainer gives him a unique perspective to a search. A significant portion of his business has been assignments from clients for which he has worked previously or through their recommendations.
Prior to beginning his executive search career, Larry’s professional experience included more than twenty years in general management, sales and marketing management, strategic business development and M&A.
He has been a key contributor within organizations ranging from Fortune 200, middle market, U.S. divisions of German and Italian headquartered companies and family owned entrepreneurial companies.
What his Clients Say
“Over the years I have worked with scores of executive recruiters, from all of the majors to single practitioners. My experiences have been varied, but none as consistent and predictable as the engagements which we have had with you.”
“Since the first search you did for me was over 13 years ago, I can honestly say that you are consistently the best search firm out there. Search firms come and go, the cost of search anywhere is not cheap, but ultimately, using your firm saves us time, resources, turnover and avoids ineffective hires, which in the long run is the most cost effective approach I know.”
