Is a well accomplished, seasoned professional. Born and raised in Bridgeport, Connecticut, one of seven children, Mr. Sullivan started his first marketing company “Clay, Bardwell & Sullivan” at the age of 23, serving some of the largest trade schools in Los Angeles and Orange County.  
He also worked directly with L.A. District Attorney’s office to expand an Anti-Gang message on a TV Ad campaign... the first of it’s kind.

Later he was designated as the Ambassador for 25 Military Bases and 38 Chambers of Commerce in So. California; acting as their community relations and marketing liaison for their relocation journals.

In 1993, Sullivan was recruited to be the Chief Mktg. & Adv. Dir. of a new product division for MAPSCO in Dallas, Texas.

Mr. Sullivan went on to establish The Major Employers Group that included over 160 of the top corporations in the DFW Metroplex — Most noted for developing a successful employee incentive program that gave local businesses exposure to over 200,000 employees via the corporations' internal intranet including advertising access inside employees pay envelopes.

Now At YESSCORP, James Sullivan has aligned a team of professionals to provide strategic marketing and fulfillment to help business owners achieve traction in the direction of their passion.

While with YESSCORP James also created Gospelbiz, a company that currently reaches out to non-profit organizations to serve them by providing FREE Marketing & Advertising services.

Mr. Sullivan is a bonafide inventor with two issued patents under his belt, and several provisional patents pending.

James Sullivan resides in Allen, Texas where he lives with his wife Barbara of 30 years and his 8yr. old daughter Autumn-Rayne. Happily ever after.
