Scott Schwadron has been named group publisher/executive director of Fire Engineering, FDIC/FDIC West, and fireengineering.com.
Having spent the 15-plus years of his career in the business-to-business media arena, where he has been actively involved with trade shows, magazines, and Web sites, Schwadron noted that an added benefit of one’s work “is to be able to make a difference in the area you serve. It is rewarding to know that what we do at Fire Engineering and FDIC helps to save people’s lives,” he observed. “I am very honored to be affiliated with these entities and those things they represent and to be a contributor to the fire service.”
In assessing his plans for the future, Schwadron explained: “I am looking forward to working closely with Bill Manning, editor in chief of Fire Engineering and conference director of FDIC/FDIC West, and his team-a prize-winning combination. Our overall top priority will be to bring our magazine, shows, and Web sites together to better serve the fire service. We plan to continue to reinvest in our magazine and our shows and to place real emphasis on our on-line presence.”
Schwadron resides in Colts Neck, New Jersey, and New York City with his wife, Sara.
