Mark Nazario

General Manager, Lexus Central Area


Larry’s work with us has paid huge dividends in really helping us understand how the mind works…to create the attitude of can do! Outside of hiring the best and the brightest at PepsiCo the other part of the equation is their attitude. We want it filled with a positive, embracing change and go after our goals with a high level of energy. Larry has really been my coach and the teacher for my team in teaching us what the "can do" attitude is all about.

James A. Kozlowski

Senior Vice President CPO (ret) PepsiCo


Why I chose Aperneo is that they tailor the approach to the client, its not going out and hiring a big consulting company that’s going to come into you with a canned product that has some form of three interconnected circles as the answer to the world. This is very individualized and it’s very human because that’s where change occurs.

Doug Foshee

President, CEO, Director (ret) El Paso Corporation


I would not have believed that with his wisdom and unique scientific/performance driven education, aligned with our organizational goals and values, we could motivate, grow and achieve such positive results in a short period of time. These positive results were recently confirmed by an independent national survey completed by our business partners, showing that we were the only Toyota Region in a down economy that not only met or exceeded our industry’s benchmarks but were the only region that grew in the category of associate satisfaction.
