In this screen grab from a video posted to Twitter, executives of Duckhorn Wineries prepare Thursday to ring the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange.
When the New York Stock Exchange completed its business Thursday afternoon, one of the men in the group ringing the closing bell was Sean Sullivan, son of longtime Carson City Planning Director Walt Sullivan.
His father said Sean is chief administrative officer at Duckhorn Wineries. The occasion was Duckhorn going public, according to Sullivan.
Sean Sullivan grew up in Carson City where his father served as planning and community development director from 1986 until 2009 when he retired as development services director.
He said Sean attended Manogue High School before going to college in California and finally Columbia Law School.
“This is something Sean has worked for his entire life,” said his father.
His mother Celine was able to go back to New York with her son and Duckhorn officials.
