Dean Mark Kornbluh Blog: A&S Hall of Fame Inductee Steve Sullivan

This year, the College of Arts & Sciences celebrated the 20th anniversary of its Hall of Fame induction ceremony. Over the last 20 years, we have recognized 79 alumni and faculty whose
contributions to the College, University, Commonwealth and beyond are far-reaching. Over the next few weeks, I will be highlighting each of this year’s inductees. Today, I am honored to recognize Steve Sullivan.

Steve graduated from the University of Kentucky with a Bachelor of Science in geology in 1978 and a Master of Science in geology in 1983. His professional career began in 1979 in Lexington and focused on environmental and water resources consulting. Partnering with the transportation engineering, planning and construction management firm Schimpler-Corradino in 1989, he founded a Louisville-based environmental consulting firm which merged into The Corradino Group in 1997. Sullivan served as Chief Financial Officer of the merged entity until his retirement in 2014.

During his professional career, Sullivan worked on several projects of lasting impact to the Commonwealth of Kentucky. These include the waste-water approval process that paved the way for Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky; the environmental documentation needed to approve construction for Yatesville Lake in eastern Kentucky; the redevelopment of the property in Louisville that is now Waterfront Park; the development of the Louisville Slugger Stadium; and the expansion of the Louisville International Airport.
