EAW appoints Scott Pizzo as North American sales manager

EAW has announced the appointment of Scott Pizzo to the position of North American sales manager, eastern region.

Previously part of the EAW team from 2003 through to 2008, Pizzo served as US sales director, among other positions. The announcement was made by, EAW president Jeff Rocha, and reflects the company’s ongoing emphasis on strengthening its sales channels and enhancing its customer relations.

Rocha said: “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. The company has positioned each sales resource closer to the customers they serve in order to deliver faster, more direct service, allowing Pizzo and Metzler to 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 commented. “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 US regional sales manager at Renkus-Heinz from 2008 through 2011. Prior to joining EAW in 2003, he worked as product specialist / technical sales at Lexicon Professional.

Pizzo stated: “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.”
