HOLLYWOOD — Charles S. Warn, veteran PR exec with the Directors Guild of America, has been promoted to the post of DGA assistant executive director.
DGA national exec director Jay D. Roth said Warn will work in a wide range of roles as part of the senior management team.
“We have been very fortunate to have Chuck Warn serve the DGA membership for more than 20 years in various communications capacities,” Roth added.
