The Prince George’s County Fire/Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Department is pleased to introduce our newest employee and IT Manager in the Information Management office, Paul Wesley Brown III, MS, MBA, MCP.
Paul Brown is proud of the many accomplishments he has realized over the course of his career, and rightfully so. In a recent interview, he stated, “During my 16 years of service at the University of Maryland, I supervised the Office of Information Technology help desk and developed policies and procedures to streamline processes for students, staff, and faculty. As an engineer, I managed the Network Operations Center and served as a subject matter expert in the university network refresh project, which was responsible for upgrading the University of Maryland’s network infrastructure for increased reliability.” As IT Director for the School of Architecture, Brown transformed an aging infrastructure by strategically aligning the school’s goals with IT initiatives that enhanced student/faculty interaction and increased efficiency. Lastly, he facilitated and managed major technology project life cycles from inception through delivery, while meeting time and budgetary constraints.
As manager of the Fire/EMS Department’s Information Management office, Brown’s goal is to automate processes and procedures that are currently paper-based. This consists of converting processes to web-based applications, where applicable; aligning staffing with Departmental and community needs, to include additional staffing and re-classification of current positions to reflect responsibilities; and becoming proactive instead of reactive in leveraging resources between IMD and OIT.
Paul Brown, 38, holds Master’s degrees in Information Management and Business Administration and is a Certified Microsoft Professional. He is also a Project Management Institute member and has successfully completed two Project Management Professional boot-camps. A native of Columbia, Maryland, where his parents have lived for over 50 years, Paul and wife Rachelle currently reside in Upper Marlboro with their beautiful daughters, Kamya (9), Kiah (4), and Karmen (2). “As far as hobbies go, I have a passion for motorcycles. In fact, I race Minimoto with my oldest daughter while being cheered on by my wife and younger girls. I also fly drones, build motorcycles, teach youth how to ride mini motorbikes, and absolutely love to cook. My greatest passion, however, is striving to be the BEST husband and father I can be.”
Welcome to the Fire/EMS Department, Paul Brown. We look forward to working with you.
