SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – The Praetorian Group, Inc., the leading safety and security online media company, today announced it has named Mike Natchipolsky Director of Business Development for Fire and EMS.
Natchipolsky most recently served as Publisher of Firehouse.com and Regional Sales Manager for Firehouse Magazine, a subsidiary of Cygnus Business Media.
