Bohdan Olesnicky parlayed his experience as a SWAT team physician — in New Jersey, with the Department of Homeland Security, and with the Palm Springs Police Department — into creating a line of vitamins and nutritional products aimed at people in high-stress jobs.
“We launched SWAT Fuel specifically for the military, law enforcement, and healthcare shift workers — people who deal with stress and trauma every day,” Olesnicky says. “We soon realized that most of the general public works just as hard, so we made it available to the public in January 2013. It’s been so well received that our biggest problem is filling orders quickly.”
Olesnicky found skilled workers for his staff in the Coachella Valley: “Whether it’s sales or management, we can draw from the local universities and give graduates a job right here.”
