Daniel J. Sullivan
Business Banking Senior Manager
“I have always enjoyed talking to and working with people, especially business owners and entrepreneurs, and I like helping them with their financial situation,” says Daniel J. Sullivan. “I believe this comes from my experience before banking, as an insurance and investment professional — I liked making sure a family or business was properly protected.” Sullivan has been mentoring several small business bankers in Maryland for the last three years. “I find it rewarding when they achieve levels of success and then work with others to help them as well,” he says.

“In 2010, we needed to restructure our debt and take out additional capital to grow. Every bank said no, but Daniel believed in us and brought in Capital One Bank’s senior leadership. They gave us exactly what we needed and, as a result, we have grown six-fold since then. Daniel has been instrumental in allowing our business to not only survive but thrive.” – Firoozeh Azarbaidjani-Do, CEO, Phoenix TS
