“Eddy Eisenberg is one of the most knowledgeable executives in the audiovisual industry,” said Ken Sanders, President, Freeman AV. “The trail of accomplishments and success that follow his career are not only a testament to his sharp understanding of the industry, but also his inherent business expertise. He has a proven track record in the acquisition and disposition of audiovisual companies and he has been instrumental in the structuring of numerous national contracts. We are excited to move into this next phase of AVT’s operations with Eddy at the helm.”
Eisenberg has more than 20 years of experience in the hospitality and audiovisual technology industries, most recently serving as the Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer at AVT.
