Jeff Rocha has been appointed as vice president and general manager of EAW, while Anthony Taylor has been appointed as vice president and managing director of Martin Audio.
In these newly expanded roles, Rocha and Taylor will assume profit and loss responsibilities for their respective brands, as well as managing all engineering, product development, marketing, manufacturing and sales efforts. In addition, Rocha will lead the EAW design and manufacturing facility in Whitinsville, USA, while Taylor will lead the Martin Audio design and manufacturing facility in High Wycombe, UK.
