Roth made the announcement Tuesday. The moves come six months after Warren Adler, the longtime No. 2 exec at the DGA, announced his retirement after 13 years as associate national exec director. The trio will report to Roth, who’s been in the top spot at the DGA since 1995. The guild, which has more than 14,000 members, said Tuesday that the changes are aimed at providing greater clarity about leadership roles and responsibilities.
