Warwick, NY— After helping lead and grow the company for the past 38 years, Meeco Sullivan announced Steve Sullivan’s retirement as President and CEO. Steve will continue to support and advise the company as a member of the Meeco Sullivan/Wahoo Advisory Board.
Steve began his marina industry career when he joined the family business, Sullivan Flotation Systems of Warwick, N.Y. in 1980. Mr. Sullivan held a variety of operational, sales and management positions before becoming President in 1995. For the past 23 years Steve and his brother Robert have helped grow the company from a small regional manufacturer into one of North America’s largest floating dock and marina companies.
In 2008 Sullivan Flotation Systems merged with Atlantic Meeco of McAlester, OK. and in 2015 the two companies were reorganized to become known as Meeco Sullivan. A year ago, Tuckahoe Holdings of Richmond, VA acquired Meeco Sullivan with a commitment to aggressively grow the business. An example of this commitment is the recent acquisition of Wahoo Docks, an industry leader in aluminum dock systems, which now gives Meeco Sullivan the broadest product line and makes them the largest supplier of steel, timber and aluminum dock systems in North America.
Peter Ladouceur was appointed the new President of Meeco Sullivan effective January 1, 2019. Mr. Ladouceur joined the company in November 2017 as the Warwick N.Y. Division Manager and National Projects Manager.
Prior to joining Meeco Sullivan, Peter was the COO of J.T. Cleary, Inc. a New York City based heavy civil and marine general contractor. Peter brings extensive operations and project management experience to Meeco Sullivan through his prior roles with J.T. Cleary, Kiewit Construction Company and Modern Continental.
