Over the course of twenty years and more than 200 successful CFO searches, Larry Ormsby has built expertise in the financial officer market that stands apart. Key to his success is his ability to develop long-term relationships with a wide spectrum of the nation’s leading financial executives. He co-founded Ormsby Park to “double down” on a pure play search model to serve his clients even more effectively.
Based in the Bay Area, Larry has had the opportunity to partner with some of the world’s most compelling and innovative companies, ranging from startups to multi-billion dollar global enterprises.
Before Ormsby Park, Larry was a Partner at executive search firm ON Partners, where he built a dedicated financial officer practice and was a major contributor to the firm's growth over his four years there. Prior to ON Partners, Larry was a Senior Client Partner at Korn Ferry, focusing exclusively on CFO and related searches as a member of the firm’s financial officer and technology practices.
Larry started his career in Tokyo with a division of Mitsui that had an early venture into digital information services. He was recruited to CS First Boston to lead a knowledge management function supporting investment banking efforts across all of Asia Pacific. Upon returning to the United States in 1996, with the technology boom emerging in full swing, he decided to focus his efforts on recruiting talent best suited for these disruptive and hyper growth companies.
Larry has a bachelor’s degree from California State University, Long Beach, speaks Japanese nearly fluently, and is a devoted San Francisco Giants fan. He lives in Berkeley with his wife Sachiko and two children.
