In his prior role with Hamburg Süd, Larkin was responsible for all commercial activities in North America and trade responsibilities in the U.S. to Latin America theaters. He has 27 years of experience in international transportation, including overseas postings in Brazil and Argentina.  He is on the board of directors of both the National Freight Transportation Association, a nationwide organization comprised of importers/exporters, railroads, ocean carriers and ground transportation services, as well as the Brazilian American Chamber of Commerce, where he serves as chairman of the trade and investment committee.
