It is with sadness that CEDIA has announced that Peter Lawn passed away this weekend, aged 40. Peter lawnPeter was well known to many in the industry, having worked at James + Giles, Sound Ideas and Gibson Music over the past 15 years. After becoming highly proficient in sales and project management at these companies, Peter moved to Olive AV, where he worked as a Senior Project Manager. Despite only being in the role for a year, Peter was very much part of the family at Olive AV and he will be greatly missed. Peter had a great deal of experience, an impressive level of technical insight, and a wealth of industry friends and relationships, which he built up over his years in the industry. “Having worked in the residential custom installation industry for many years, Peter’s knowledge and expertise were second to none,” says Wendy Griffiths, Executive Director of CEDIA EMEA. “His reputation in the industry and enthusiasm continued to grow in each role. We have lost a dear friend and valued colleague, who will be missed by everyone who knew him. Our thoughts are with Peter’s family and friends." A memorial service is being held from 3pm on Wednesday 3rd June at The Ruskin Arms Hotel in East Ham, London. The service is open to Peter’s colleagues.
