At CapRelo, we value employees with a sense of mission and service, and encourage our team to pursue a greater purpose both in the workplace and outside of it. To learn more about him and is role at CapRelo, I recently sat down with VP of Global Business Development, Pete Larkin. Or perhaps we should be calling him "Deputy Chief."
Raised in Hartford, CT by parents who both worked for the state, it's no question that Pete was raised to work hard. His resume includes 20 years as an Assistant Professor in Psychiatry at UConn, 21 years of experience in business development and former PGA caddy for Lee Trevino for good measure. Following in his father's footsteps, he has also worked 20 years as a Volunteer Firefighter in CT, earning the rank of Deputy Chief. He and his wife, a Rehab Occupational Therapist, adopted and raised two loving children from Korea as infants. His son, now 30, is living and working in L.A. as an actor and his daughter, now 26, is living and working in NY as a writer.
While much of his personal time involves Irish music, cheering for the Red Sox and reading biographies, his most rewarding pastime is training and recruiting new firefighters. And while the work Pete accomplishes at CapRelo as VP of Global Business Development is essential to forming strategic relationships with our clients, it is Pete's cultivated experience as a businessman, family man and firefighter that makes employees like Pete our biggest asset.
