About Larry Dunivan

I am the executive VP of  products and sales at Ceridian HCM, a leading global business services supplier in the HCM technology space.  In 30 years, I’ve pretty much had every job you can in a software company — support, consulting, product development, product strategy, sales — so I have a pretty good idea of the view of the world as a vendor.

And for some reason, I’m passionate about this stuff — so much so that when I’d decided I was burned out from my first 20 years in the field, I left.  Four years later, in 2005, I reached an important conclusion.  When you learn as much as I have in 20 years in a single field, it seems pretty stupid to walk away from it without a second thought.  And that’s what I’d done.

So here I am, back working in the software business and frankly, having the time of my life! I blogged on and off for more than three years, and now I’m coming off an 18 month hiatus (translation:  no time, no energy, no motivation).  We’ll see if 2013 and beyond is different.

From a personal perspective, I live in Saint Paul, Minnesota.  I’ve been here since 1988 and have found it a terrific place to raise my two twin daughters, who are in college (sadly, far away from home).  Yes, the cold winters are daunting — but in August, when you’re a couple of hours north of the Twin Cities, on a boat floating atop a beautiful lake, you become forgiving!

Note:  the views expressed on this blog are my personal opinion and do not necessarily reflect the views of my employer Ceridian.

  3. Mr. Dunivan, I work for an HR PR/marketing firm. In fact, our blog [HR Markter] is on your blogroll. I would like to promote your blog to our clients by adding it to our database, but to do so I need an e-mail address. Please let me know if that is acceptable to you.

    Good to see you’re still kicking around. Have many fond and fun memories of Lawson HR in the ’90s.
