Larry Born is the leader of Professional Office Environments. He started out in a major account role within the office furniture industry. After 9 years, he embarked on his quest to open his own business, co-founding POE. Larry served as POE’s Vice President of Sales for the first 20 years, then successfully transitioned to President/CEO where he has been presiding for the past 7 years.

Utilizing Open Book Management, Larry wove a framework for POE that ties performance to pay, rewarding members for exceptional client service and performance. He is focused on creating an energized company culture that encourages members to go above and beyond. As a result, POE has an engaged, passionate workforce – evidenced by Gallup recently reporting POE member engagement and participation at over twice the North American average.

When not at POE, Larry enjoys finding unique travel experiences, hiking, snow skiing, chasing the dogs around the yard, and spending time with family and friends. He one day hopes to retire, become a complete vagabond, and meander the globe with his wife, Mary.
