Sullivan came to L-3 in May after a 37-year career in the U.S. Navy. He has served as the U.S. representative to the NATO Military Committee at NATO Headquarters in Belgium and as commander of U.S. naval forces in South Korea.
Sullivan will report to Richard A. Cody, vice president of L-3's Washington operation. Cody also came from the Pentagon. He joined L-3 in 2008 after a 35-year career in the U.S. Army, where he rose to the rank of general and served as the 31st vice chief of staff.

Gates' efficiency initiatives announced on Aug. 9 may have included a freeze on the number of high-ranking general officers and a directive to reduce the number over the coming years. But retirement from the military is often not the end for these public servants, who go on to work for corporate America as it tries to maintain a high level of defense spending. We'd like to follow this issue more closely. Readers, please send us your examples of revolving-door moves by former military flag officers and other high-ranking government officials.
