Kevin Sullivan, Senior VP and CSO, Hitachi
Sullivan has a reputation as a “real straight shooter,” Fredrickson said. “Kevin is the guy, with customers especially, who always operated with the highest level of integrity.”
As a result, Fredrickson said, “He developed a lot of trust with a lot of people.”
That trust has helped Sullivan in his latest role at Hitachi. He joined the company as chief strategy officer in January 2005, after collaborating on the creation of the new position with Kenji Nakamura, general manager/executive vice president of Hitachi America’s consumer electronics division.
