With the official naming two weeks ago of CEO Peter Edge and president/COO Tom Corson, the rest of the RCA team is falling into place, sources tell Billboard.biz.
Joe Riccitelli will lead the pop/rock promotion teams, while Mark Pitts becomes president of Urban Music/Bystorm Entertainment. Geo Bivens, meanwhile, will run the urban promotion staff. Keith Naftaly, Rani Hancock and David Wolter will assume senior A&R positions.
Aaron Borns, Lisa Cambridge and Carolyn Williams will lead the marketing department. And Karen Lamberton will oversee film and TV licensing/strategic marketing. Bob Anderson will run sales, Mika El-Baz will oversee the publicity team, and Samantha Lecca will run the video production team.
On the business side, Dan Zucker will lead business affairs and Cliff Silver will head up finance. In another move, the company will now issue all releases under the RCA Records label, sources say.
