This CFO couldn’t get hired at 61, so he started his own business — and hired lots of seniors

Larry Chester, who worked as a chief financial officer for a handful of companies, was 61 and out of job — and nobody seemed interested in hiring him for a full-time position.

Although no one outright told him he was too old to be hired, he noticed little cues. Companies would hire him for short-term stints, sometimes while looking for a full-time candidate. Once during an interview process, he was asked to make a 15-year commitment — but he was in his late 50s by then. “In spite of all of my experience I had, I’d make it to the final two or three people but never get over the hump,” he said.
