Learn more about Rita Pepaj, Marketing Director for the Forum! Rita manages everything from digital marketing to onsite experiences!
Job before joining the Clippers?
Before my time at the Forum, you could find me at Capitol Records/EMI. I was part of the digital marketing team that worked on the music catalogs of The Beatles, Pink Floyd, The Beach Boys, and countless others.
When did you realize you wanted to work in the entertainment industry?
When I bawled my eyes out at my very first concert, the Spice Girls. I was 12 years old, and it was the most incredible experience. At that moment, I knew I wanted to do that on repeat for the rest of my life. Maybe minus the crying, though.
What’s your favorite thing about your job?
I love creating special projects for all of our shows which include both guest and artist facing experiences. Our team is always trying to outdo ourselves, so it has been incredibly rewarding to see our ideas to come to life.
Show nights at the Forum are beyond special – from eating dinner to watching the performance, every part of it reminds me how fortunate I am to be part of such a special group. To top it off, we get to sing along with fans from all walks of life while experiencing the thrills of live music.
Also, Italian food night in the Forum Club.
What advice do you have for women trying to break into the entertainment industry?
Treat others with kindness and respect, build relationships and take your internship seriously. Those connections can stay with you for years to come.
If you could have dinner with any woman in the world, who would it be and why?
Michelle Obama because Michelle Obama. Is there even another acceptable answer?
