Larry Ross

Over the course of Larry’s 25+ years of executive search experience – 12 as a Partner – he has led over 450 senior level search assignments, largely focused on two sectors: Industrial & Distribution and Technology & Media.

As the North American Leader of Amrop's Industrial Practice, Larry has worked closely with a range of manufacturing and distribution clients committed to global growth strategies. His work with Technology & Media organizations keeps him at the forefront of this industry’s rapid race to develop and market innovative products and services.  Larry has been particularly successful in helping entrepreneurs grow their businesses with the integration of disciplined professional leaders who demonstrate an ability to adapt to new and dynamic environments.

While Larry has recruited leaders across the majority of functional areas, he has built a solid track record recruiting experienced general managers and C-level leaders for finance, HR, IT and Legal teams, often attracting talent from international markets.  This experience has enabled him to hone his ability to quickly identify and qualify suitable candidates, while maintaining a focus on cultural fit.  

Larry holds an honours undergraduate degree (HBA) and a Masters degree (MBA), both from the University of Western Ontario’s Ivey School of Business. 

He sits on the board of Canada’s largest seasonal NFP tennis club and is its Past President, completing a 4-year term in 2015.  He and his wife live in North Toronto and are the proud parents of four children.
