Eastern Acoustic Works has announced that renowned audio engineer, John Mills, has joined the company as a senior applications engineer.
Mills is an industry expert of 25 years, having most recently served as VP of Nashville’s Morris Light and Sound, where he worked for the past eight years.
Over the course of his pro audio journey, Mills has serviced more than 100 houses of worship and other installations, and has mixed front-of-house at virtually every major arena and stadium in the continental US and Canada. He is most recognised for his FOH work with stars such as Chris Tomlin, Lincoln Brewster, Shane and Shane, and Paul Baloche, as well as for being systems engineer for country musician Kenny Chesney.
“We couldn’t be more excited to have John as part of our team,” enthused EAW director of product management, Jeremy Forsythe. “His experience and reputation speak for themselves, but his personality and ability to form connections based in trust and respect is what stands out. EAW was built on relationships and a commitment to solving real world problems, and John perfectly embodies that spirit.”
“I am delighted to join the EAW team,” Mills responded. “EAW has been at the forefront of loudspeaker design for more than 40 years, and now the company is taking another leap forward with innovative, forward-looking solutions. They’ve put together a great engineering team under Geoff McKinnon, Kenton Forsythe has returned, and the future looks bright. It’s a great time for me to bring my experience and skills to EAW.”
As well as the significant return of cofounder Kenton Forsythe to the company, John Mills’ prominent appointment follows the recent nomination of Glenn Kalinowski as director of sales for North America. These internal changes have followed the company’s acquisition by RCF from LOUD Audio last year.
