Kevin O’Sullivan has been making an impact in the lives of people with MS for over 23 years. As a child, Kevin’s mother instilled in him the importance of doing things for other people. His father, a captain in the Navy, taught him discipline and to stand up for the greater good. Throughout his life, he has combined his talents for leadership, fundraising and visionary planning with his enthusiasm and sensitivity for others in volunteer activities.
His involvement with the National MS Society began in 1987 along with others in his young professionals group. Since then, the Oklahoma Chapter has benefited in critical times of need when Kevin stepped into the Board Chairman position to provide leadership that was crucial to the life of the organization. Kevin restructured the Board during a time of turmoil and ineffectiveness, and spurred Board members to become active in events and programs and services, greatly increasing the impact of the Chapter on people with MS in Oklahoma. Kevin has also been a member of the National Board for the National MS Society since 2005. On the National Board, he has served on the Executive Committee, and has held leadership positions on the National Audit Committee and the Chapter Relations Committee.
Kevin’s twenty-three year commitment to the Oklahoma Chapter not only includes key leadership roles, but ongoing funding of the mission through special event participation and support of the Dinner of Champions. Kevin has completed over twenty-one consecutive Bike MS events as a key fundraiser and has raised over $20,000 during each of the past two years. Kevin also attends statewide educational programs including the chapter’s legendary Getaway Weekend.
Kevin is President and Chief Operating Officer of MIRATECH Corporation, an expanding, international business headquartered in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Kevin is married to Karren and has two children Patrick and Kaitlyn. His leadership commitments outside of the National MS Society have ranged from serving on a local bank’s small business advisory board, serving in leadership positions in his Church, to volunteering as the Fundraising Chair for his children’s soccer club.
