June 12, 2023

The Farm today announced the addition of Steve Kawasaki to the company’s leadership team. In this role, Kawasaki becomes part of the group of industry leaders responsible for fueling the company’s growth.

“Steve and I have been associates as well as friends for many years,” says CEO and Founder of The Farm, John Hood. “Our company has finally reached a stage where we can truly benefit from his talent and experience. Steve is the piece of the puzzle we’ve been missing and will give us the ability to serve our largest partners at scale. On top of that, he is one good-looking dude.”

Prior to joining The Farm, Kawasaki held sales management and leadership roles with audio manufacturers Biamp, Symetrix, Loud Audio, integrator AVI-SPL and broadcast distributor, BSW. Kawasaki began his multi-decade career in the recording studio and live sound.

“I’ve long admired The Farm’s commitment to innovation and excellence,” says Kawasaki. “I’m thrilled to be joining this exceptional team.”

Outside of work, Kawasaki loves to spend time with family and friends – occasionally combining that with backcountry skiing and playing music.
