John Greene, sales director at New Era Technology US, has died after a battle with cancer. Greene, who was 63, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his family.
As reported by our sister title Systems Contractor News (SCN), Greene began his AV career at technology distributor Peirce Phelps, where he spent his early years building television studios. From there, he went on to work at JVC Professional, and later, Total Video Products.
Greene joined Advanced AV in 2006, with the company later acquired by New Era Technology in 2018. “John was a beloved member of our New Era family, and he brought great wisdom and support to all that crossed his path,” said Michael Boettcher, president, Video Collaboration US, New Era Technology. “No matter the circumstance, John had a way about him that made you smile, laugh, or simply feel better than you did the minute prior. We are very fortunate to have had John in our lives and we will miss him greatly.”
Greene, a passionate mentor to many and an SCN Hall of Famer, was an avid supporter of the AVIXA Women’s Council and the AVIXA Diversity Council.
