EAW was built on relationships and a commitment to solving real world problems, and John perfectly embodies that spirit.”

They’ve put together a great engineering team under Geoff McKinnon, Kenton Forsythe has returned, and the future looks bright. It’s a great time for me to bring my experience and skills to EAW.”
