Myron Sullivan II
Master of Business Administration, 2008
Myron is a visionary, inventor, entrepreneur and engineer with a passion to succeed. He has founded and managed several successful companies, has been awarded numerous patents and has invented and manufactured the chrome brush guards, winch mounts and grill protectors we see mounted on SUVs.
But his biggest idea came to him in 1989. During that year the Exxon Valdez oil spill occurred off the coast of Prince William Sound, Alaska. It was this disaster that inspired his vision to create a robotic, satellite-controlled airborne-recovery system that would be capable of very quickly, containing, recovering and recycling a large marine oil spill.
The vision evolved into what is now known as the AEROS System®. Myron engineered and developed AEROS, which stands for Airborne Robotic Oil Spill Recovery System, through his environmental company, Global Response Group (GRG).
His plan is to provide innovative technology solutions such as the AEROS System to control global disasters. Myron says that as a student in the MBA program at University of Phoenix he wrote graduate papers about GRG and AEROS, including papers that focused on upgrading the GRG executive summary business plan. He said his MBA classes were in step with what he needed to develop a strategic marketing plan, and establish corporate short-term and long-term objectives.
In recognition of his commitment to greening the environment, he was selected to be on the Board of Directors of Green Team America, a national organization dedicated to promoting environmental awareness among youth.
