Jets' Business Development Exec Riccio Steps Down After 17 Years
NFL Jets Senior VP/Business Development Marc Riccio is leaving the team after 17 years. Riccio has resigned, but will remain with the club for another three to four weeks. A search for his replacement is being conducted by Korn/Ferry, and will include internal candidates, like VP/Business Development & Ventures Jeff Fernandez, a Jets marketer for the past 10 years. Riccio said of his next step: "I will probably do some project-work consulting, but that’s not my long-term goal."
Riccio’s resignation is the latest in what has been a turbulent week for NFL marketing and sales execs, with the departures of NFL Senior VP/Sponsorship & Media Sales John Brody and Buccaneers CMO Jason Dial.
