Eric Echols | Vice President of Technology

Eric began his career in 2008 at an international A/E firm and joined Pershing in 2010 and quickly became a sought-after designer and consultant to renowned commercial, healthcare, education, and financial organizations. Eric holds the InfoComm CTS-D certification and is an active member of both the Audio Engineering Society (AES) and Acoustical Society of America (ASA).

He is keenly interested in the ways that technology integrates into and enhances the built environment. His love of art and music informs his approach to design and collaboration – a life of training as a musician taught the virtue and reward of practice and attention to detail as well as how to interact with and collaborate with others towards a common goal with each contributing their own part and specialty. In addition to his work at Pershing, Eric has taught graduate-level courses in acoustics and audiovisual systems design at Johns Hopkins and has participated in industry working groups.
