In addition, I was able to develop new business in several new verticals. -Montclair Ambulance Unit- Lieutenant Apr 2009 – Jul 2013 I led a squad of EMS providers on the front line of first response. My daily tasks included organizing crew assignments, managing large-scale emergency scenes and managing a team of Type A personalities. That's more difficult than it sounds. But I got it done. Because I put out fires. -Catering By Michael Schick- Event Manager Aug 2004 – Jan 2010 I directed the event operations for various events - anything from weddings to corporate functions. This included managing and coaching staff. Plus, I oversaw all aspects of event coordination and execution to make sure our clients felt a high-level of service.
