DETROIT— Bill Sullivan, vice president, strategy and development of The Heat And Warmth Fund (THAW), has been selected to participate in the Detroit Regional Chamber’s Leadership Detroit program, a 10-month transformational leadership program designed to challenge emerging and existing community leaders from Southeast Michigan to bring about positive change.
“The insight Bill will gain through Leadership Detroit will prove invaluable as he leads our organization into its future state,” said Susan Sherer, CEO, of THAW. “Bill’s participation will not only challenge him to make a difference in this region, it will also raise awareness and inspire others to take action.”

As part of Leadership Detroit’s Class XXXIV, Sullivan, of Royal Oak, will join 69 executives from across the region, representing a cross-section of the community, including business, organized labor, government, education, media, civic groups, health services and community organizations.

“Southeast Michigan has some of the most talented executives anywhere, and their leadership holds the key to our region’s future prosperity,” said Sandy K. Baruah, president and CEO of the Detroit Regional Chamber. “Leadership Detroit has a strong legacy of bringing together executives from around the region who are committed to making a difference. This year’s class is poised to drive the dialogue and build the relationships that will move our region forward.”

Leadership Detroit provides opportunities for participants to foster and spark problem-solving, while providing new views on key issues to lead the region to success. As it has since 1979, Leadership Detroit will continue its role in addressing, discussing and leading conversations important to the Detroit region.
