The opportunity for Tim to lead an accomplished team that includes Harvey Eisner, an icon for over 40 years with Firehouse, as well as Firehouse veterans Jeff Barrington and Peter Matthews, provides us with experience and leadership unrivaled by anyone serving the fire service today."
"I'm honored to join the Firehouse team and I look forward to the opportunity of working together to help train and educate our nation’s firefighters while continuing to strengthen and improve the Firehouse brand," Sendelbach said.
Tim will join the Firehouse team on Aug. 1 to begin building on the great work that Firehouse has done to educate and inform the fire service and lead the way in the fire service media market.
