Sullivan has been active in the association for years and has served in various capacities over the years.
As an inaugural member of the state Green Building Council, Sullivan has helped the Oklahoma Building Summit grow to the prominence it has achieved. He and wife Linda live in Oklahoma City.

2015 promises to be an exciting year for the Oklahoma State Home Builders Association. As you can see, it is under good leadership.

He will get great guidance from Paul Kane, left, most recently honored as National E.O. of the Year, and Mike Means, the state's executive officer and on the NAHB ladder of that organization.
