“We build relationships with leading global companies and we’re thrilled to add American Greetings as our greeting card licensee,” managing director for Roc Nation United, a strategic licensing alliance between Roc Nation and United Entertainment Group, Tom Caravella adds. “Roc Nation United is focused on creating innovative ways for artists and athletes to connect with their fans, and this new relationship with American Greetings is a great opportunity to do so in a very special and entertaining way.”
