Scheller College Executive MBA Alumni Pete Quinones Named AACSB 2019 Influential Leader


The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) annually recognizes those who combine business leadership with passion and purpose for its “2019 Influential Leaders.” Alumni honorees are selected based on their meaningful, lasting impact in the world.  AACSB’s Influential Leaders recognizes these graduates and the business schools that prepared them. 

This year, one of Scheller College’s own, EMBA (2018) alumni Pete Quinones was awarded this honor and named an "influential leader."  An innovator and leader, Pete Quinones has implemented numerous technologies and programs to provide better health care to residents of the Atlanta area.

Through his Executive MBA from the Scheller College of Business at Georgia Tech, he obtained key tools for understanding how technological change creates new business and innovation opportunities. As an industry leader in pre-hospital care, Quinones implemented several innovative programs unique to Metro Atlanta Ambulance Service (MASS) a company he founded several years ago and currently oversees as CEO.

Quinones initiated the placement of the LUCAS chest compression system in all of MAAS' emergency 911 ambulances throughout northwest Atlanta, which serves a population of over 1.2 million citizens. As the only ambulance service in Georgia to use the device, MAAS has set the standard for pre-hospital cardiac care in Georgia, and national reports have confirmed higher survival rates.

Quinones also implemented a program that enables a paramedic's scope of practice to include home health visits. This program has reduced unnecessary visits to the emergency room, created a new business model for MAAS, and reduced pulmonary and cardiac patient readmission rates.
