Larkin was most recently the founder and CEO of Solo, a solar software company aimed at optimizing sales flows and streamlining company operations. In just six years, Solo scaled quickly in the market and now originates 40% of all residential quotes annually, with Larkin overseeing the expansion since the beginning. His extensive knowledge of problem-solving from a solar software perspective uniquely positions him to understand the nuances of solar as he leads through strategy and growth at Lumio.

Prior to his tenure at Solo, Larkin was part of the team that launched Encōr, a fullstack solar company that installed thousands of projects, resulting in hundreds of millions of dollars and thousands employed across the country. Larkin was involved with providing a comprehensive customer experience throughout the entirety of a homeowner's switch to solar. At Encōr, he oversaw the development of a software that was eventually branded as Solo to be a standalone product for other solar companies to use. Before Encōr, Larkin started Evolve Solar, which was the fastest growing solar company in the nation prior to being acquired by SunEdison.
