As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

An accomplished energy executive, accountant and investment banker, Mr. McCullough recently co-founded Summit Franchise Consulting alongside his daughter.
