EAW co-founder returns

Eastern Acoustic Works’ co-founder and former VP of strategic engineering Kenton Forsythe has returned to the company after a three-year hiatus.

‘When I left three years ago, I took a year off,’ Mr Forsythe explained. ‘A couple of years ago I started looking around but I didn't find the right situation. Then EAW president TJ Smith gave me a call. EAW is pursuing some advanced product development, and TJ asked me to contribute.’

The landscape has drastically changed at EAW since Mr Forsythe last worked there. During the last couple of years, EAW’s then parent company, Loud Audio, was acquired by Transom Capital Group. Loud then sold EAW to RCF Group in September 2018.

‘Now we're owned by Arturo Vicari, who also owns RCF and db Technologies, which opens a new toolkit,’ enthused Mr Forsythe. ‘We operate independently but are part of a group of companies, and the technology can be shared amongst the groups. RCF also has really good components that are now available to us. So we have resources we didn't have previously.’

Mr Forsythe is returning to the company in a part-time, consultancy capacity. ‘I kind of reclaimed my role as the transducer guru,’ he said. ‘Our head of engineering, Geoff McKinnon, is excellent, and he provides the leadership and vision. I collaborate with suppliers on component designs as well as new product development concepts, working with and under Geoff and director of product management Jeremy Forsythe.’
