DGA promotes PR pair

Communications toppers Rumpf, Moridani upped

The Directors Guild of America has promoted two execs overseeing its communications department, with Morgan Rumpf upped to associate executive director and Sahar Moridani to assistant exec director.

“Morgan’s leadership of the guild’s communications department and dedication to the guild and its members over the past nine years has been exemplary,” said national exec director Jay Roth. “We are fortunate to benefit from his energy, expertise and ideas and I look forward to watching Morgan continue to excel in his new position. Sahar has taken leadership of the guild’s press and public relations to a new level of excellence, and her work on behalf of the guild’s membership for the past 4 1/2 years has been tireless.”

Rumpf joined the DGA in 2003. As part of the executive leadership team, he will continue to oversee all internal and external communications efforts including the recently relaunched website, the DGA Monthly, the DGA Quarterly, media relations, mailroom and special campaigns.

Moridani joined the guild in 2007. She will continue to serve as the primary spokeswoman and will be responsible for managing and implementing messaging on issues ranging from collective bargaining to digital theft to entertainment community activities and events.
