EAW announces the expansion of its Application Support Group (ASG) with the appointment of Adam Shulman to the position of Installed Systems Support Manager, effective immediately.
The announcement was made by Jeff Rocha, EAW President, and further underscores EAW’s dedication to customer support and the ongoing development of market-driven products.
In this newly-created role, Shulman will manage ASG support for all permanently installed sound systems, while longtime ASG resource Joe Fustolo will focus on mobile production customers.
Rocha states, “Expanding ASG and bringing in a world-class resource like Adam, who is dedicated exclusively to the installation markets, further demonstrates our commitment to supporting our customers and partners.”
Increasing global demand for ASG service, particularly in overseas markets, necessitated the expansion. Jerrold Stevens, Director, EAW Application Support Group, adds, “Adam’s experience in system design, project management, acoustics, education and publishing all further enhance the team’s capabilities, helping us meet the growing demand for our services.”
Prior to joining EAW, Adam has served as a Senior Consultant and Project Manager for SIA Acoustics (New York, Los Angeles and India) since 2003. He has provided acoustical and technical system design for a variety of projects including performing arts spaces, recording facilities, sports venues and houses of worship. Projects of note include a production facility and 3,500-seat arena for Healing Place Church in Baton Rouge, LA, Oriole Park at Camden Yards, and The Pearl at the Palms Concert Hall in Las Vegas.
In a production context, Adam has also designed and operated sound systems for live events, including Central Park SummerStage, the Madison Square Park Music series and various special events domestically and internationally. As an educator, Adam has authored numerous articles for various trade publications, and presented at Broadway Sound Master Classes, Palme Asia, ShowWay Italy and Audio Engineering Society conventions.
Shulman notes, “I feel that I can bring my past experience as a consultant to bear on the varied types of design projects ASG handles, applying my technical knowledge combined with a practical understanding of how installation projects actually work.”
Members of the EAW Application Support Group, including Stevens, Shulman and Fustolo, will be on hand at InfoComm 2012 at the EAW booth (C10139) where they will reprise their popular ASGenius Bar – a coffee bar where designers, contractors and integrators can ask questions and review plans.
