At ISI, Larry was an executive in its trademark licensing division, developing licensing programs for noted brands such as Cadillac, Sports Illustrated for Kids and Wheaties as well as athlete clients such as Steve Young and Jerry Rice.

In 2000, ISI was among several firms acquired by SFX Sports and Clear Channel Entertainment.
