Pizzo Returns to the Company and Will Help EAW Focus on Sales and Continued Growth
Whitinsville, MA, USA, January 24, 2012 – EAW®,
a world leader in audio system technology for over 30 years, announces
the appointment of Scott Pizzo to the position of North American Sales
Manager, Eastern Region. Pizzo was previously part of the EAW team from
2003 through 2008, serving as U.S. Sales Director among other positions.
The announcement was made by Jeff Rocha, EAW President, and reflects
EAW’s ongoing emphasis on strengthening its sales channels and enhancing
its customer relations.
Rocha states, “Re-hiring Scott is a critical step in
strategically growing our internal capabilities. He brings tremendous
experience and strong connections to dealers and end users. Plus, he’s
intimately familiar with the EAW product line, so he can hit the ground
running. Having Scott here in the home office will help us keep the
sales perspective front-and-center.”
In his new capacity, Pizzo will focus on sales in the
eastern half of North America, allowing Kurt Metzler, EAW’s existing
North American Sales Manager to focus on the West. As EAW has
positioned each sales resource closer to the customers they serve so
they can deliver faster, more direct service, Pizzo and Metzler will
manage the total North American territory cooperatively.
“Our business is complex to the point that an
installation might be specified in one territory, awarded to a
contractor in another and installed in a third,” Rocha said. “It just
makes sense for Scott and Kurt to collaborate in driving our North
American growth in 2012 and beyond.”
Before rejoining EAW, Pizzo served as Eastern U.S.
Regional Sales Manager at Renkus-Heinz from 2008 through 2011. Prior to
joining EAW for the first time in 2003, he worked as Product Specialist /
Technical Sales at Lexicon Professional. He graduated with a Bachelor
of Music in music performance with an emphasis in recording and
production technology from University of Lowell (now UMass Lowell). His
experience spans both the studio world and event production, and in his
free time, he does freelance event production for local-area
organizations and businesses.
Pizzo states, “EAW is like home to me. I was an EAW
owner before I was an employee, having purchased an FR253HR in 1996 or
so. I am looking forward to reconnecting with customers and building EAW
to the greatness it deserves, because EAW is the best. It’s good to be
