Executive in Residence at the Center for Collaborative Leadership
Lawrence (Larry) Moulter is the Executive in Residence at the Center. Larry is an established and respected Boston business leader skilled in building value from under-performing assets. He has repeatedly proven himself in situations that have required strong strategic business development and sales/marketing skills with a focus on profit and cost control. Larry is versatile, flexible, and adaptable. His record is one of creating strong organizational performance across a wide range of industries including hospitality, entertainment and transportation. As Chairman and CEO of the New Boston Garden Corporation, Larry was the lead executive for the development of a new Boston Garden - the first person to do so in 68 years.
As CEO, he has also led BostonCoach through the depths of the recent recession to emerge as a restructured company with improved customer performance and a sustainably profitable business model. He also broke from the status quo at Woolf Associates by significantly expanding the services of this marketing agency beyond merely athlete representation creating a multi-platform firm.
Larry has turned around the businesses he has led or taken a growth-potential company to the next level through his focus on performance and financial discipline, creative yet controlled revenue-building, and profit management.
He is a values-based business builder, who believes that an organization’s culture breeds, not follows, its success.
He is skilled in relating to all stakeholders. He effectively and transparently communicates and collaborates with executive teams and employees, investors and financiers, government leaders, media and the public.
Larry served as Chief Executive Officer of Boston Coach, a $170 million subsidiary of Fidelity Investments. He was recruited by and reported to Fidelity Chairman Ned Johnson to grow the company through new revenue initiatives. However, the recession forced him to downsize and reposition Boston Coach to become a smaller and more profitable organization without losing its focus on building a strong customer experience. He left when Fidelity divested Boston Coach in early 2013.
Prior to BostonCoach, Larry ran his own strategy consulting firm – Moulter Associates – where he advised companies like Dunkin Brands on their marketing communications and served as interim CEO of a venture-backed advertising services startup. He has also been Chief Operating Officer of a private $50 million internet content delivery provider and as Chief Executive Officer of Woolf Associates, a marketing agency that he acquired with Ed Eskandarian and Bobby Orr.
Earlier, Larry was recruited to develop and implement a turn-around strategy for the operating company that owned the Boston Garden (host to the Boston Bruins, Celtics, concerts and other events) as its CEO and Chairman. During the next nine years, he changed the organization’s culture, shifted its business model, and generated operating revenue that was seven times greater than during the decade before he arrived. He led the development and construction of the new Boston Garden while also serving as a Director and later Chairman of the NESN Regional Sports Network.
In addition to his service on the New Boston Garden Corporation and NESN boards, he was a mayoral appointee to the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority, a Trustee of Northeastern University, Chair of the Board of the American Liver Foundation New England Chapter, and a Director of the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Boston. He is currently the Chairman of the Board of The Campus Agency, a college marketing company.
Larry holds a BS from Northeastern University and an MA in International Relations from Syracuse University. He also earned his JD from Suffolk University.
