John Kennedy

EVP Event Technology

​​An event technology expert at heart, John is energized by Freeman’s unique ability to introduce clients to technology that enhances entertainment value, builds excitement and engages audiences.

John oversees Freeman Audio Visual’s operations for all U.S. locations.

With more than 32 years of experience, John understands where the industry has been and where it is going. John started as a technician for AVW in 1984, a company which Freeman acquired in 1975 and rebranded to Freeman Audio Visual in 2008. During his time, he worked in a variety of operational and technical roles before being promoted to General Manager of the Dallas office in 1996. In 2000, he was promoted to Regional Vice President of the Texas region. John was then named Senior Vice President of Operations in 2003 and most recently named Executive Vice President and COO in 2015.

The technology we deliver to our clients allows us to create awe-inspiring moments that make them – and us – proud.

Even after more than three decades in the business, John is still inspired by how event technology creates truly amazing experiences for our clients and is inspired by the sense of pride to be able to deliver on that promise.
