Our History and Legacy of Service

The James F. Sullivan, Jr. Lifetime Achievement Award

James F. “Jim” Sullivan was the long time Director of Credit of The O’Malley Lumber Company, and a dedicated member of this organization since 1966. Jim was instrumental in helping to bring about the basis for Arizona’s present day lien notice statutes. In addition, he was a mentor to many, and served a number of community and charitable organizations with humility. Jim left a legacy of service which we honor with this award in his name and his memory.
