|Info||Sullivan clerked for U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Andrew Kleinfeld of Fairbanks from 1997 to 1998 and for then-Chief Justice Warren Matthews of the Alaska Supreme Court until 1999. He joined the Anchorage office of the law firm Perkins Coie in 2000, where he practiced business and corporate law. He is not related to Anchorage Mayor-elect Dan Sullivan. |
Sullivan, born in Fairview Park, Ohio, from the Cleveland area, had lived in Alaska for five years when he left the state in 2002 after receiving a White House fellowship. He said at the time that the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attack inspired him to apply.
He was with the White House as a director in the International Economics Directorate for the National Security Council and the National Economic Council. Sullivan, a Marine reservist, was called to active duty in 2004 as an adviser to the U.S. Central Command. Bush then appointed Sullivan to be assistant secretary of state for economic, energy and business affairs from June 2006 until last January. He oversaw a staff of 200, according to the governor's office.
The Alaska Bar Association registry lists Sullivan, 44, with an address in Bethesda, Maryland. Records show he received permanent fund dividends at Alaska addresses from 1999 through 2002, and then in 2003 with a Washington D.C. address.
He maintained property in Anchorage and voted absentee in Alaska elections as recently as 2008. Sullivan is a registered Republican, according to records. Sullivan's wife, Julie, is the daughter of former state representative Hugh Fate of Fairbanks and Mary Jane Fate, who is a former co-chairwoman of the Alaska Federation of Natives and was also on the University of Alaska board of Regents.
Sullivan is a graduate of Harvard University with a law degree and a master's in foreign service from Georgetown University.
