New Artist Relations Director At Vic Firth

Vic Firth ’s personnel department has been working overtime to find a replacement for the company’s longtime artist relations director, Marco Soccoli, who moved onto a new position with D’Addario (home base of Evans heads, Puresound snare wires, and RealFeel pracxtice pads). Big news — Vic Firth scored by snapping up industry veteran Joe Testa, who proved his mettle many times over while handling artist relations for Yamaha drums and Warner Brothers Publications. In fact, Joe started his new position this morning. Congrats on the new gig, buddy!
