Biography

General Sullivan is the president and chief operating officer of the Association of the United States Army, headquartered in Arlington, Virginia. He assumed his current position at the Association in February 1998 after serving as president, Coleman Federal in Washington, D.C.

Born in Boston, Massachusetts on 25 September 1937, Gordon Sullivan was commissioned a second lieutenant of Armor and awarded a bachelor of arts degree in History from Norwich University in 1959. He holds a master of arts degree in Political Science from the University of New Hampshire. His professional military education includes the U.S. Army Armor School Basic and Advanced Courses, the Command and General Staff College, and the Army War College.

General Sullivan retired from the Army on July 31, 1995, after more than 36 years of active service. He culminated his service in uniform as the 32nd Chief of Staff - the senior general officer in the Army - and a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. As the Chief of Staff of the Army, he created the vision and led the team that helped transition the Army from its Cold War posture.

He is the co-author, with Michael V. Harper, of Hope Is Not a Method (Random House, 1996), which chronicles the enormous challenges encountered in transforming the post-Cold War Army through the lens of proven leadership principles and a commitment to shared values. Gordon Sullivan is a trustee of Norwich University and serves on the boards of several major corporations, including Newell-Rubbermaid, Shell Oil and Getronics Government Solutions, L.L.C. He is also a director of the Atlantic Council of the United States and the George C. Marshall Foundation and the Chairman Emeritus of the Marshall Legacy Institute.

During his Army career, General Sullivan also served as Vice Chief of Staff (June 1990-June 1991); Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations and Plans (July 1989-June 1990); Commanding General, 1st Infantry Division (Mechanized), Fort Riley, Kansas (June 1988-July 1989); Deputy Commandant, U.S. Army Command and General Staff College, Fort Leavenworth, Kansas (March 1987-June 1988); and Assistant Commandant, U.S. Army Armor School, Fort Knox, Kentucky (November 1983-July 1985). His overseas assignments included four tours in Europe, two in Vietnam and one in Korea.
