The Details

In commemoration of founder Dan Sullivan, Sr., Collette celebrated its second annual Founder’s Day on July 18. To honor his dedication to the community, 123 Collette employees dedicated 380 hours of community service to improve the Rhode Island community, and a statue of Sullivan, created by Chris Kane, was unveiled in Collette Park.

“Collette was a huge part of my dad’s life, and he dedicated his life to his work, his family and giving back to the community,” said Dan Sullivan, Jr., president and CEO of Collette. “He always believed that when you find a job you love, you’ll never have to work another day in your life.”
