Eastern Acoustic Works announces that John Mills has joined the company as a senior applications engineer. A 25-year industry veteran, Mills most recently served as vice president of Nashville’s Morris Light & Sound, where he worked for the past eight years.
Over the years, Mills has commissioned and tuned 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 U.S. and Canada. He is well known for his front of house work with such stars as Chris Tomlin, Lincoln Brewster, Shane and Shane, and Paul Baloche, as well as serving as systems engineer for Kenny Chesney.
“We couldn’t be more excited to have John as part of our team,” enthuses 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 responds. “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.”
