He works very hard to understand the client’s need and has an expansive network which allows him to execute against the strategy.  Larry is ethical beyond reproach and understands how to gently nudge the process forward and across the finish line.
Bill Upshaw, President Lodging and Residential, TPI Hospitality
In early 2013, we engaged Larry Mendez at Bannerot Partners to conduct a search for a chief operating officer for our company, Supertel Hospitality – a publicly traded REIT located in Omaha, Nebraska.
