Ryan Sullivan (BA Finance ’06), director of business development at Rock Ventures in Detroit, is the recipient of a Young Alumni Achievement Award from both the Broad College of Business and Michigan State University. Ryan was honored at the Broad College’s annual fall scholarship luncheon on September 27 and by the university at its Grand Awards Gala, part of Homecoming 2013, on October 10. Earlier this year, Ryan was named by Crain’s Detroit Business to its “20 in their 20s” list.

Ryan is a true believer in Detroit’s transformation. He wrote an opinion piece called “My Detroit Opportunity” in the May/June issue of dBusiness. He translates his words into action, each day living out the Mahatma Ghandi quote: “Be the change you want to see in the world.”

Congratulations to Ryan on the public recognition of his many achievements.
