Peresman Is A Hall Of Famer

Joel Peresman was named CEO and president of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation June 20th.

Peresman was most recently the COO of Clear Channel Entertainment’s music operations in the tri-state area of New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

He is also the former executive VP of Madison Square Garden and a William Morris Agency alumnus.

Suzan Evans, one of the Hall of Fame founders, will relinquish her role as executive director, a position she has held since the foundation’s inception in 1983.

Peresman said he was looking forward to expanding and creating strategic partnerships with media businesses, sponsors and artists.

He will remain based in New York City.
