Larry Johnson

Partner, Mid Continental Region

After submitting a resume to a random classified ad, in an industry completely unfamiliar, Larry launched a career in the audio/video industry. From those humble beginnings installing video systems in churches, businesses, and schools, he eventually rose in the ranks and turned that into a Regional Sales Manager role with a thirteen state territory. Along the way he has been trained in consumer electronics, lighting control, and automation, for both residences and commercial applications. Most of those years were concentrated on designing highly technical systems that remained fundamentally easy for the end user. Both from the blueprint stage, and existing buildings.

In addition, he spent five years on the “supply side” and marketing of the audio/video business, and is now using that experience to build Hearing Loops Unlimited into a national presence. The end goal being to help as many people as possible, as efficiently as possible, to improve as many lives as possible. Larry currently lives in Oklahoma, but after living in Houston over twelve years, considers South Texas his second home.
