He commanded both the Fast Attack Submarine USS Birmingham (SSN 695) and the Trident Submarine USS Florida (SSBN 728). He also played a major role in such initiatives as the delivery of the Virginia-class submarine, the development of the Trident submarine SSGN program, the modification to the USS Jimmy Carter (SSN 23), the introduction of the Advanced SEAL Delivery System (ASDS) to the operating forces, and the pursuit of commercial-off-the-shelf technologies for submarine combat and communication systems.

Sullivan earned a bachelor's degree from the United States Naval Academy and a professional engineer's degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. He earned a master's degree in ocean engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a master's degree in national security affairs from the National War College in Washington, D.C.
