Meet Our Staff: Amy McCarthy
How would you describe what you do at Protectowire FireSystems?
Technical sales involves many aspects here at Protectowire, being the first point of contact for our distributors, specifying engineers, and general inquires. I am responsible for application guidance, pricing assistance, tech calls, and a multitude of other tasks. My day is responding to a constant flow of phone and email — fast-paced, multitasking to an extreme; I love my job! I get to speak to amazing people every day from every aspect of our industry. Protectowire is a great company full of great people and all of this combined is what makes this the perfect job for me.
I couldn’t live without my…
Music and books.
What would you be doing if you weren’t at your current job?
You mean what would I be doing if I was a millionaire? I would have a beach shack on the Cape and a house in England. I would travel extensively and work with non-profits.
How do you recharge?
Anything to do with being outside – ocean, hiking, kayaking, books, and music.
When I’m not at work, you can find me…
You can’t find me.
Something you’ve learned working for Protectowire.
I’ve learned a lot working for Protectowire. I think the biggest thing I’ve learned and continue to remind myself is that I can’t do it all in one day and be okay with that.
What are three things still left on your bucket list?
I would like to spend a month out on a sailboat with my husband, Steve. I would like to drive a really sick race car wicked fast. I would love to own a horse.
