EAW® Names Scott Pizzo North American Sales Manager, East



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 home.”
