Larry J. Scully
Larry Scully attended UW-Madison on a gymnastics scholarship, earning a BS and MS in civil and environmental engineering (1971 and 1972). He finished his gymnastics career at Wisconsin by placing fourth in the Big Ten championships. After working for several years as a project engineer for Roy F. Weston, Inc., of Chicago, he returned to his alma mater and completed an MBA (1975) in finance and banking. This combination of engineering and business training was the perfect springboard for a highly successful career providing investment banking services to the environmental and infrastructure industries.
Putting his dual interests to work in 1976, Scully joined the environmental and energy projects group of KPMG Peat Marwick, a Washington, D.C., financial advisory services firm. In 1983, he became vice president for energy ventures and privatization for Eden Hannon & Co. of Alexandria, Virginia.
