As the CEO of Primus Technologies Corporation, Chris Sullivan oversees an organization that strives to provide its employees with the best possible place to work. Under Chris Sullivan’s guidance, Primus Technologies has been ranked a number-one supplier by its corporate customers.

The company has a strong philanthropic giving program, and it has given $1.5 million St. John Neumann Regional Academy in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. A faith-based institution in the Catholic tradition, St. John Neumann offers preschool through 12th-grade instruction.

In addition to classroom time, the school provides extra-curricular activities, mostly related to academics:

The Academic Decathlon stimulates intellectual competition for grades 9-12 by organizing competitions in social science, economics, music, art, literature, and mathematics. Additionally, students take part in essay writing and public speaking events. School teams square off at the local, region, state, and national levels.

Odyssey of the Mind encourages creative strategies for solving problems. Students in grades 3-12 form teams of five to seven for competition at regional, state, and world events. St. John Neumann is one of the few schools that consistently send teams to the world finals, and it has one world championship to its credit.

Other organizations for student development include the National Honor Society, the Interscholastic Reading Team, and the Folk Group-Liturgical Ensemble, which provides music for religious services.
