EAW announce two key staff appointments

James Bamlett of EAW

Eastern Acoustic Works (EAW) have promoted James Bamlett to Sr. Director of APAC and EMEA Sales and announced the hire of Robert Scovill to the position of Sr. Live Sound Market Manager.

In his previous role as Director of APAC Sales, Bamlett managed EAW’s current distributors and helped increase sales throughout the Asia Pacific region from his base in Southeast Asia.

In his new role, Bamlett is responsible for adding new distributors and managing the existing sales channel in the APAC (Asia Pacific) and EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa) regions.

“James has a proven track record of managing existing distributors and expanding sales, and we are confident that he will continue to excel in this new position,” said T.J. Smith, president of Eastern Acoustic Works.

Bamlett joined EAW almost 25 years ago, starting in a product specialist role before transitioning to sales. His technical background together with his sales skills have enabled him to expand EAW’s presence in the APAC market.

Scovill (above) brings a wealth of practical experience as both a professional mixer and a manufacturer to provide a unique perspective to EAW, and will contribute to a wide breadth of the company’s live sound business.

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.

This 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,” explained Smith. “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.”
