RCA GM/EVP Promo Joe Riccitelli Honored By William Patterson University

Congratulations to RCA RECORDS GM/EVP Promotion JOE RICCITELLI, who is being honored by WILLIAM PATERSON UNIVERSITY. RICCITELLI graduated in 1985, and has maintained strong ties to the school. He's returned to do guest lectures at the school's music management program, and served as WILLIAM PATERSON's de facto music industry expert.
That's why JOE is being honoring him on THURSDAY (4/21) at its 26th annual Legacy Award Gala, a fundraiser that also features a silent auction and special performances, at 6:30P at THE GROVE, 691 Pompton Ave., CEDAR GROVE, NJ. Call (973) 720-2934 or wplegacygala.com for more info.
"I believe in paying it forward," said RICCITELLI. "The industry has been really good to me, and I think it's time to give back." Among his ways of giving back, is arranging to have WILLIAM PATERSON students intern at RCA, just as he himself was a student intern back in the day. "I think it's really important to bring new blood into the business," he says. "If I hadn't had the internship, I wouldn't have gotten into it."
