Whitinsville, MA (February 28, 2024)—Eastern Acoustic Works (EAW) has brought on front-of-house mix legend Robert Scovill as its new Sr. Live Sound Market Manager.

Scovill’s new role will be to work tightly with existing teams on product definition and positioning, in-person demos and trainings, as well as providing thought leadership. According to EAW, that will include refining and shaping all public-facing communication. These duties will include assisting with written product descriptions, as well as the listening and voicing of new and existing production-level audio systems. Scovill will drive the creation of educational how-to pieces on industry topics such as tuning and deploying large-scale ADAPTive systems, passive and active articulated systems and subwoofer arrays.\

“We are excited to welcome Robert to the team – he brings decades of pro audio and live sound expertise to EAW and further demonstrates our commitment to being a leading loudspeaker manufacturer in the industry,” explains T.J. Smith, president of EAW. “From driving strategy and tactical development to helping define and finalize products with an end user perspective, Robert will take on a multi-tiered role.”
