Hugh Larsen
Principal Consultant – Parallaxgroup

“[…] unquestionably the most impactful CEO that I worked for during my 25 plus years in medical product development […] Many CEOs speak about the importance of culture; but in truth, it’s just a business word that happens to be in vogue.

Truth, honesty, fairness, accountability and strong work ethic were attributes that were expected and he set a ‘high bar’ for us all.”
