Founder of LyfeWell
Larry Butler is a seasoned business professional with four decades of success in creating, launching and operating enterprises. With three national, one international and one regional telecommunication firm, Mr. Butler personifies the meaning of the of word “entrepreneur”.
As the Internet, along with the acceptance and usage of pre-paid credit cards (debit cards) and cell phones rapidly increased, Mr. Butler recognized the competitive telecom landscape was shifting away from traditional methods of communicating. He made the decision to sell his interests in the telecom and data “space” in order to build a company with a giving-back model. This decision ultimately led him to pursue his passion for better health and he began a journey searching for an innovative way that would serve patients suffering from a wide variety of health related conditions.
In the fall of 2016 his unique solution for better health care was born and Mr. Butler opened the first LyfeWell alternative healthcare center, located in Johns Creek, Georgia.
Married for 48 years to the same great gal with two grown children and five grandchildren. When he’s not at LyfeWell, Mr. Butler is an active member at First Redeemer Church, a member of the Non-Profit Board of Directors and loves to hunt and fish.
