Lawrence J. Ferolie was a Lieutenant with the U.S. Navy. He served as an attorney with the Judge Advocate General staff (J.A.G.) before becoming an Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York with Robert Morgenthau. He earned his law degree from Brooklyn Law School and capped his studies with a master’s degree in taxation (L.L.M.) from New York University. Larry left civil service to join his Father, A.J., in the management of Ferolie Corporation, a Manhattan-based Food Brokerage Company serving the Tri-state area. Leveraging his legal and leadership skills, L.J. grew his father’s company from one local office to a best-in-class regional organization — ESM Ferolie, responsible for almost two billion dollars in sales.

ESM Ferolie, an organization with strong traditions of excellence in each respective area of operation, has provided its valued clients with customized sales and marketing solutions since 1948. Each company is staffed with disciplined people with a commitment to service, leading edge technology, and superior management to meet the challenges of the highly competitive consumer products environment. The business is family owned and operated with a tradition of professional representation —  a new level of excellence in human resources and training, and innovative local, regional and national marketing strategies. ESM Ferolie maintains the highest levels of honesty and integrity resulting from partnerships based on trust and commitment.

Lawrence and Jeanne were married for many years and had five children.
