Early life and education
Lettieri was born in 1982 and raised in New York City by his parents. He’s an alumnus of Xavier High School and was an active member of the baseball and track and field teams. A graduate of Syracuse University, he earned his bachelor’s degree and competed on the track and field team, running the 100 and 200 meters during his time there.
Lettieri started his career at Sprint Nextel, where he worked in mobile and telecom business development from June 2004 to June 2008. He went on to hold leadership positions at Pacnet from June 2008 to March 2013 and Bank of America, where he was senior vice president of network and security services product delivery and management strategy from March 2013 to August 2015. During his time at Bank of America, he built technology portals for traders.
Recycle Track Systems
In 2014, neighbor and friend Adam Pasquale presented Lettieri with an idea to develop a cloud-based waste and recycling management technology company with a heavy emphasis on sustainability and within 30 days had filed paperwork to start Recycle Track Systems (RTS). The company uses data analytics and a proprietary tracking system to provide efficient trash collection, recycling and waste hauling.
Lettieri and Pasquale designed RTS to provide smart, dependable and environmentally responsible services to create more visibility into a company’s impact on the climate. RTS provides real-time reporting of waste, recycling and donation drop-offs, and provides detailed waste diversion metrics that help companies assess and advance their sustainability goals. 
Since launching Recycle Track Systems in 2015, Lettieri has helped develop four unique technologies for the company, including a customer-facing application for smartphones, a tablet equipped with turn-by-turn GPS truck routing and a digital routing sheet, a desktop CRM tool for haulers and customers and an internal application that remotely tracks trucks and service orders.
RTS has been aggressive in creating sustainability programs. It currently works with Citi Field to keep organic waste free of plastic cups and straws so composting farms will accept it. The company is also monitoring how much food waste is diverted from landfills and provides documentation the New York Mets can use in promoting their eco-friendliness.
In 2017, RTS became a certified B Corporation.
Lettieri leads workshops and speaks at large nonprofits and businesses on recycling, waste management, technology and sustainability. His talks include “Keep it Simple: Breaking Down Data” at WasteExpo 2018, held in April at the Las Vegas Convention Center and the March 21, 2018, panel discussion, “Sustainable Disruption — Companies Leading Towards Change,” with Tina Hedges, CEO, LOLI Beauty and Miranda Gardiner, Director Strategic Planning & Partnerships, Urban Fabrick. He’s also led workshops on engagement through operations for the Green Sports Alliance and appeared as a guest on Launch Pad of Wharton Business Radio.
Lettieri supports the Staten Island Community for the Lifestyles of the Disabled Charity Group, a nonprofit that provides job opportunities to young adults and adults who have special needs. Lettieri has a brother with special needs and helps sponsor events and fundraisers for the Staten Island Community for the Lifestyles of the Disabled Charity Group in his brother’s honor. Their mother sits on the board of directors and their father works there as well.
Lettieri is also an advocate for New York City’s Futures and Options internship program, helping to professionally develop ambitious high school students.
Lettieri won Waste360’s 40 under 40 award for outstanding contributions to the waste and recycling industry.
Lettieri produced two musical soundtracks for NBC, “Peter Pan Live!” and “The Wiz Live!”
He worked with a team of other producers to raise capital to produce the soundtracks and he told Waste360, “I see myself staying very involved with the Broadway community in the future.”
