Michael Sullivan

Managing Director


Mike Sullivan specializes in buy-side healthcare mergers and acquisitions and has more than twenty years of healthcare experience in operations, business development, and consulting.

Mr. Sullivan joined the Marwood Group in late 2006, shortly after the inception of a consulting/advisory practice. Thereafter, he had full responsibility for creating and directing the firm’s business development strategy with private equity firms. That practice became a leading provider of consulting services for the portion of the private equity community that invests in US-based healthcare. He maintains relationships with thousands of individuals from the private equity, leveraged finance, and investment banking community. His team engaged in projects to more than 250 private equity firms over an eight-year period. These firms include roughly 90 percent of the growth equity and buyout funds that are committed to investing in US-based healthcare services.

Prior to 2006, Mr. Sullivan worked in healthcare consulting and in operations for both private and public companies in the post-acute and senior care market. He led three different senior housing communities from opening to profitability and successful sale. During that time, he also helped establish two limited license home care agencies in the State of New York. Mr. Sullivan also supported skilled nursing facilities in clinical, coding, and reimbursement compliance efforts as a consultant. Early in his career, he worked in community-based healthcare for LiveOn NY, a non-profit for which he now serves as a board member.
