Larry Carlson began his career with Arizona State University at the West campus in 1987.  His first role was an accountant and executive coordinator for the Dean of Faculty.  He then served as the campus accountant for the Comptroller’s office for 20 years until joining the New College as Director of Fiscal and Business Services in 2009.  In 2015 Larry retired but returned to ASU shortly afterwards in his present part-time position as a business manager, initially to assist with the merger between ASU and the Thunderbird School of Global Management. 

He served as a representative for the ASU Staff Council for many years. When President of the ASU Staff Council, he worked collaboratively with the tri-university group to successfully convince the Governor's office and ADOA to allow insurance benefits for domestic partners.  During the same time, he advocated successfully to establish the option for single parents to purchase insurance for employee + 1 instead of the expensive family plan.  He also worked with ASU administration to implement a policy that encourages employees to be offered up to 16 hours release time per year for professional development.

Larry is also an IRS AFSP registered tax professional.  He trained new tax preparers and is currently a partner of a local tax company.  In his free time, Larry enjoys his Maserati TC hobby, supplying parts for 1989-1991 touring convertible models worldwide from his ranch in the White Mountains. 

He is proud of his daughter as a recent graduate of the Carey School of Business, continuing the family tradition at ASU.
