Sunrise Pinnacle Awards
On October 11, the Rochester Regional Chamber of Commerce held the Sunrise Pinnacle Awards at the Royal Park Hotel in downtown Rochester, to honor various members of the community for their services. Oakland University mechanical engineering professor Chris Kobus presented the OU INC Economic Development Award to Bernard Sullivan.
Sullivan, founder of the Livonia-based Sullivan Corporation, was given the award based on his work with the Rochester Regional Chamber of Commerce SCORE program, which helps news businesses get off the ground. Sullivan has been a part of this entrepreneurial development program for the past decade.
Oakland University and OU INC have been involved with the Rochester Regional Chamber of Commerce for a number of years, and has been their lead sponsor since 2006. Chamber President Sheri Heiney is enthusiastic about the relationship with University through their involvement in various events, including the Rochester Hometown Community Parade, and the Community Outlook Luncheon. “Our mutually beneficial partnership continues to develop and improve the quality of life of residents in the Greater Rochester Area,” Heiney says.
