Albany, NY, June 21, 2007 - BullEx™ Digital Safety CEO Ryan O'Donnell was recently named one of The Business Review's 40 Under Forty for 2007. O'Donnell, a Guilderland, NY native, received the award at The Business Review's annual luncheon in May. The award honors business leaders of New York's Capital District. This year's honorees were selected from nearly 200 nominations.
BullEx™ Digital Safety was formed by a group of engineers that recognized the importance of fire extinguisher training but were tired of the messy, time consuming practice of traditional training methods and products. O'Donnell, an experienced fire safety officer and former Assistant Fire Chief to the Town of Guilderland, has been intimately acquainted with the demands of conventional training. BullEx™ Digital Safety's systems are cleaner and allow a safer and faster alternative to fire extinguisher training. Their products utilize sensor technology that is able to detect where the trainee is aiming and sweeping the extinguisher, allowing flames to respond accordingly.
Under O'Donnell's leadership the company has grown to a multi-million dollar international company with a client base that includes GE, International Paper, Harvard, Shell Oil and hundreds of other companies, institutions, fire departments, and government agencies. BullEx™ has won numerous awards which include the 100K Tech Valley Business Plan Competition and more recently the Environmental Health and Safety award from The National Registry of Environmental Professionals and the Top Product Award from the occupational health and safety industry publication, Facility Safety Management.
"I'm honored and humbled to be named to the Business Review's top 40 under Forty," commented O'Donnell, "At BullEx™ I am fortunate to work with a great team of hardworking individuals who are all responsible for making us a leading manufacturer of fire extinguisher training systems. Certainly, this is a great recognition for our company as a whole. " O'Donnell plans to continue expanding the company and developing new fire safety products.
