School of Communication Alumnus Ryan Pritt and his brother, Jeffrey, a current student in the School of Communication, co-founded Pritt Entertainment Group, which coordinates music and video for the “in-game experience” at InfoCision Stadium.
Founded in 2008, Pritt Entertainment Group is the brainchild of brothers Ryan and Jeffrey Pritt, and a culmination of their interests and talents. According to the organization's website, "both had a passion for production, entertainment, marketing, and of course, like most guys… sports. Combining their shared passions, Ryan and Jeffrey started working with several sports teams across Northeast Ohio, providing a variety of strategic marketing services."
The company currently has a team of nine marketing and production specialists and serves a variety of teams across several different sports including The Cleveland Indians, The Cleveland Cavaliers, and the Akron Zips. With a posh new office space in the heart of downtown Akron's entertainment district, business is good.
