Garrett Laudenback

Co-founder & Head of Client Operations

/ Back Story

Garrett is passionate about partnering with clients to solve their business needs through innovative thinking and developing others to rise above. He believes that wise leadership is the ultimate competitive advantage, and has seen how TSOR Group’s integrative approach uniquely positions it to create meaningful change within the organizations he serves.

Growing up in a middle-class family in Southern California, Garrett spent his early years working as a sailing instructor at a local community college to fund his competitive sailboat racing aspirations. While attending the California Maritime Academy, Garrett had the valuable opportunity to work on Capitol Hill, an experience which showed him that a leader must have a foundation of strong character. After graduation, Garrett began working in the Port of Los Angeles at age 21 as manager of Longshoremen  – a position which further defined his relational approach to leading and underscored the long-term ineffectiveness of positional power.
