Larry Connor is a founder and CEO / Managing Partner of the Connor Group. Larry got his first taste of entrepreneurship in High School after starting a painting business with a close friend. That taste led to a career in entrepreneurship (with a few pit stops along the way). Larry has founded companies from the painting business he started in high school, to technology companies, and then in 1991, Larry saw an opportunity in the Real Estate industry and founded Connor, Murphy, and Buhrman with two partners. Today, the Connor group manages over $3 billion in assets with a focus on luxury apartment communities. Outside of the Connor Group, Larry is a busy man – he’s part of the Axiom Mission 1, in which he’ll become the first private astronaut to visit the International Space Station. He also flies an F-5 fighter jet in his spare time, has won multiple racing events, and has summited Mt. Kilimanjaro and Mt. Rainier.
