Hawaii Business Magazine’s CEO of the Year recognizes outstanding leaders who have contributed immensely to Hawaii’s economy for many years. As the magazine’s editor, Steve Petranik, notes, “Choosing Patrick Sullivan was easy. Without him, there’s no Oceanit, and without Oceanit, today’s innovation sector in Hawaii looks a lot more sci-fi than reality.”
Dr. Sullivan founded Oceanit in 1985 as an engineering firm but has since guided Oceanit to be a ‘Mind to Market’ company. Since 1985, Oceanit has built a world-class reputation for developing and migrating fundamental science to real-world applications across a variety of high technology disciplines.
