PSAV, parent company of Dubai-based eclipse, has named Ben Erwin as Chief Executive Officer. Maintaining his current title as President, Erwin will now be responsible for driving the strategic direction of the company and overseeing the execution of its business plan. Erwin succeeds Mike Mcllwain, who has served as CEO since 2011.
“I am honoured to assume the role of CEO during this pivotal time,” Erwin said. “We are focused on positioning PSAV for a return to growth and long-term success as we continue to provide creative solutions to our customers and venue partners.”
Erwin continued: “On behalf of the entire team, I want to thank Mike for all he has done for PSAV during his tenure and, personally, for his mentorship and guidance to help me prepare for this role. His impact will continue to be felt by our organisation long after his formal departure from the business.”
Mcllwain added: “Ben has been an important partner in supporting PSAV’s growth over the past five years, and he has the right combination of leadership skills and financial and operational acumen to guide the company well into the future. Along with our full board, I am confident in his ability to step seamlessly into the CEO role and build on our more than 80-year history of helping to bring unforgettable events to life.”
