Philadelphia, PA–(HISPANIC PR WIRE)–January 27, 2006–Joseph Carrillo, the young and multi-talented professional who led from the operational side the national representation of the Hispanic print industry in the U.S. through a successful tenure as Chief Operations Officer (COO) of the National Association of Hispanic Publications, Inc. (NAHP), is beginning this week as a new Hispanic Newspaper Executive with the AL DIA team in Philadelphia.
Mr. Carrillo is a graduate from the prestigious Georgetown University, in Washington DC, where he excelled in many capacities as a student leader throughout his collegiate career.
