Lawrence A. LaMotte
Vice President, Public Policy, Immune Deficiency Foundation
Larry joined the Immune Deficiency Foundation (IDF) in 2009 after a successful career in business and as an elected official in the General Assembly of the State of Maryland.
Larry’s interest in health policy issues crystallized while serving 12 years as an elected official. In that capacity, Larry served on the Environmental Matters Committee as Chairman of the Subcommittee on Health and Environment. Virtually all health and environmental legislation came before his subcommittee.
After voluntarily leaving the legislature, Larry was named Vice President of Business Development and Marketing of Trigen Baltimore Energy Company. At Trigen, he successfully developed several multi-million dollar co-generation energy projects.
In 2003, Larry formed Energy Options, LLC, a consulting firm which assisted medium and large businesses by devising purchasing strategies of electricity and natural gas that mitigate financial market risk in the deregulated marketplace. In late 2008, Larry merged Energy Options with a larger energy consulting firm.
Larry continued to be active in the Baltimore community having served on the boards of a hospital, a non-profit health services provider and now a committee of the Maryland Hospital Association.
At IDF, Larry is responsible for all public policy matters including federal and state legislation, a regulatory issues as well as health insurance policies which create patient access obstacles to care.
