Joe Riccitelli Named Co-President RCA Records

William Paterson graduate, Joe Riccitelli, has been named Co-President of RCA Records.  He’ll be serving alongside John Fleckenstein.  Their ultimate boss is RCA Chairman/CEO Peter Edge.

Joe was a guest on the Music Biz 101 & More radio show back in 2016.  You can listen to it below.  At the time, Doc Marcone whispered to others, “They’re grooming him for bigger things.”

The bigger thing just happened.

Congratulations, Joe!
