EAW has appointed Bernie Broderick and Jeremy Forsythe to the positions of Business Development Managers for live and installed sound, respectively.
‘Our goal is to continue to provide customers working in live sound and systems integration with direct access to individuals who are dedicated to those markets,’ explains EAW VP of Global Sales, Rusty Waite. ‘Bernie came to EAW with an extensive, high-level, background in live sound. Although his most recent role with EAW has been as Technical Training Manager, it was clear to us that his history, skillset and unique approach to the industry made him the perfect candidate for this new role.
Broderick brings nearly 30 years’ experience as sound company owner, professional touring FOH and systems technician, as well as 17 years as an educator for EAW. He was also one of the initial collaborators of the ADAPTive line of products and has worked intimately with hundreds of shows and numerous tours that use the product line.
‘Jeremy’s skills will be invaluable to consultants and integrators,’ Waite says. ‘By dedicating his focus to installed applications, EAW will offer our customers access to a level of knowledge and insight about EAW products that was not available before. Jeremy is available to work hands-on with everyone interested in using EAW products.’
Forsythe joins EAW from five years as lead designer and project manager for an A/V integration firm operated by Hollywood nightclub owner John Lyons – who was integral to the design and development of EAW’s Avalon club series loudspeakers. He also has an education in architecture that will be valuable to systems integrators.
‘In many ways, I feel like I have been a member of the team for years,’ Forsythe says. ‘What is truly significant about these new roles is how they affect our customers. I have already felt a tremendous surge of positive energy coming from our base with the knowledge that they have a contact at EAW who intimately understands their needs. Expect many new and exciting things from EAW as we create new strategies focused on delivering value to our customers.’
