After his success at a recent Omaha fundraiser, benefit auctioneer Jonathan Larsen is looking forward to expanding his business into the Omaha-Lincoln metro areas and throughout the state of Nebraska. Larsen is President and CEO of Larsen & Larsen Auction Company (larsenauctioneering.com), which specializes in fundraising auctions as well as premier consulting services to non-profit clients. Based in Sioux Falls, SD, Larsen has traveled throughout the country to help organizations achieve and exceed their fundraising goals.
In April 2015, Larsen served as auctioneer at the Open Door Mission’s annual auction and dinner. His combination of event management and planning, auctioneering and entertainment helped the mission raise $150,000 in one night; a 63% improvement over 2014, when the same event raised $92,000.
Larsen is a certified Benefit Auctioneer Specialist, which is a designation that only 1% of all auctioneers have earned. He has extensive experience in event planning and management, and can serve as a consultant to plan the details of the benefit.
Jonathan holds a BA in Business Management from the University of Sioux Falls. He was awarded the honorary title of Colonel from the Missouri Auction School and has received his Benefit Auctioneers Specialist designation from the National Auctioneers Association.
He is also a member of the Nebraska Auctioneers Association and the South Dakota Auctioneers Association.
