Aspire In The Community


Mary “May” Mullin

The Aspire Group’s Founder, Chairman and CEO, Dr. Bernie Mullin, is a firm believer in dedicating time and resources to making the world a better place. This belief was heavily instilled in him as a young boy growing up in Liverpool, England by his mother, Mary “May” Mullin. As a result, Aspire’s leaders have served on many philanthropic boards, including: YMCA, Make A Wish Foundation, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Children’s Harbour of South Florida, 49ers Foundation and the Children’s Village in Dobbs Ferry, New York. Consequently under Bernie’s leadership, The Aspire Group makes it a priority for all our staff to take time to give back to the communities in which we work all over the globe. We dedicate each effort in honor of the matriarch of our Founder’s Family – May Mullin. With over 200 employees, operating in 30 cities in 7 countries on 3 continents, Aspire is able to positively impact many philanthropic organizations that improve the quality of life for thousands of marginalized individuals, giving them hope for their futures.


“As a socially responsible and community involved company, it is Aspire’s duty to give back on a year round basis. We are fortunate enough to have a global presence where we can make an impact all over the world. In this respect, Aspire believes in the philosophy espoused by the famous British Statesman Winston Churchill ‘We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”

– Dr. Bernie Mullin, Chairman & CEO
